BEULAH, Colo. — Residents of the Mountain Shadow Estates and Twin Buttes neighborhoods are allowed to return home after being evacuated due to the Beulah Hill Fire.

Residents of these areas must get a re-entry permit at the Colorado State Fairgrounds 4-H building. The building is open from 10 a.m. to 7 p.m. Thursday and Friday. Residents must present proof of address and auto registration.

If you have more than one vehicle for re-entry, each driver needs to register for a permit at the 4-H Building.

Only residents of these two subdivisions will be allowed back into the evacuated area. This is the only re-entry planned so far.

Re-entry will be conducted in phases, according to the Pueblo County Sheriff’s Office.

Residents returning home should be cautious of the following:

  • Food may be spoiled due to extended power outages. Health officials ask that residents leave this food in refrigerators and freezers to avoid attracting wildlife. Dumpsters will be brought in for residents to dispose of spoiled food.
  • First responders continue to work in the evacuation area. Officials ask residents to drive slow and stay aware.
  • Heavy smoke will remain in the area and could cause breathing difficulties for people with respiratory illnesses.
