LOUISVILLE, CO - DECEMBER 30: Two homes burn during a wildfire in the Centennial Heights neighborhood on December 30, 2021 in Louisville, Colorado. State officials estimated some 600 homes had already been lost in multiple areas around Boulder County and were fueled by winds that gusted upwards of 100 miles per hour at times during the day.

(CNN) — With nothing but the clothes on their backs, thousands of people in north central Colorado fled their houses as intense fires bore down. The flames scorched almost 2,000 acres, leaving ashes and uncertainty where homes had stood just hours prior. The fires have displaced entire communities. And aid groups are busy providing help.

 

If you need help

 

People needing assistance can reach Boulder County’s emergency call center at 303 413 7730.

 

If you can give help

 

Boulder County officials are working with Airbnb to potentially provide temporary shelter for fire victims. If you are interested in becoming Airbnb hosts to those impacted, sign up at Airbnb.org.

Gofundme has reopened their wildfire relief fund in response to the Marshall and Middle Fork Fires to process donations helping wildfire victims.

You can also donate to vetted organizations working to support the fire victims by clicking the button below.

CNN’s Impact Your World team will continue to update this page as more aid groups become available.
