A large wildfire in Colorado is threatening houses and has closed a Nationwide Park after it ballooned in dimension, rising by 6,000 acres (2,428 hectares) in an hour on Wednesday (Oct. 21). 

The East Troublesome Fireplace has burned 170,163 acres (68,862.5 hectares) as of Friday morning and triggered evacuations stretching from the city of Grand Lake to the city of Estes Park, the gateway to Rocky Mountain Nationwide Park. The fireplace’s boundary is just 11 miles (17 kilometers) from the biggest wildfire in Colorado historical past, the Cameron Peak Wildfire, which has been burning since Aug. 13. There are fears that the 2 fires might merge, according to 9News.
