Loveland Reservoir Road fire update: 10 percent contained, 3 subdivisions' evac alert, new video

As the Fourmile Canyon fire near Boulder appears to be winding down, is a new one, dubbed the Reservoir Road fire near Loveland, ramping up?

That's what authorities are trying to determine this morning. Right now, the blaze, which has already scorched between 600 and 700 acres, is just 10 percent contained, with a hot, dry day on the horizon.
