(Boulder, CO) -- Crews hope to take advantage of more favorable conditions today as they continue to battle a wildfire in a highly populated area of Boulder County, Colorado.
Commander Rick Brough with the Boulder County Sheriff's Office says firefighters will receive additional support from seven aerial tankers as they work to contain the 35-hundred-acre wildfire.
Windy conditions kept aircraft grounded for much of the day yesterday.
Officials said today's objectives are to contain the fire and protect homes that are being threatened.
Some 35-hundred people have been evacuated since the wildfire began Labor Day in the Fourmile Canyon area.
There are no reports of deaths or injuries, but a number of homes have been destroyed.
