Finally, an updated map of the Hayman Fire has been posted! This one is current as of Wednesday evening.

As you can see by comparison to yesterday’s evening’s map, the fire hasn’t grown much towards us (to the northeast) in the past 24 hours. In fact, the fire’s growth rate has really leveled over the past 36 hours. The Hayman fire is now estimated to be 90,000 acres.

There were reports this afternoon that the fire had destroyed 30 homes in the Turkey Rock subdivision, but that appears to be false. 9 News reports:

A lieutenant with the Teller County Sheriff’s office denies reports that homes have burned at Turkey Rock subdivision. Earlier Wednesday afternoon, the U.S. Forest Service said that 30 homes burned there. The lieutenant says a deputy was at Turkey Rock Wednesday and is emphatic that no homes have burned.

I’m sure that’s welcome news for those living in Turkey Rock.
