Most Marshall fire evacuation orders lifted

Officials this morning lifted the remaining evacuation orders for most of Superior and all unincorporated Boulder County addresses following the Marshall fire.

As of 6 a.m. Wednesday, residents are allowed to return to all areas of Superior with the exception of South 76th Street, which remains closed between Marshall Road and Sycamore Street.

Residents with addresses in previously evacuated parts of unincorporated Boulder County are also allowed to return home.

There were no updates to the parts of Louisville that remain under hard closure.

Some residents may see colored cards on structures when they return home. Orange cards mean there is limited entry and restricted use, while red cards mean the structure is unsafe. Residents with a placard on their home can call the phone number on the card to get more information.

Dumpsters have been placed in the burn area for the disposal of spoiled food, but should not be used for debris.

Superior and Louisville do not have potable water, and residents are asked to bring bottled water, while Xcel Energy and Comcast officials have been working on restoring services to the area.

The Marshall fire, which started Thursday morning near Colo. 93 and Marshall Road, is now 100% contained, but there are still hot spots within the fire perimeter.

So far, nearly 1,000 homes and businesses have been lost in the fire.
