Loveland Reservoir Road fire update: 35% containment -- but not out of the woods yet

The Fourmile Canyon fire near Boulder is winding down at this writing, but the Reservoir Road blaze outside of Loveland is still more out of control than in. Containment stands at 35 percent. But in many other respects, the news is positive. Says spokeswoman Debra Schofield: "Firefighters feel that Monday and Tuesday were good days."
