UPDATE: 360 homes now categorized as 'total loss,' according to sheriff

Posted by on Thu, Jun 13, 2013 at 9:16 AM

According to El Paso County Sheriff Terry Maketa, at today's 9 a.m. press conference:

"Right now we have verified the immediate burn area ... 1205 homes that are confirmed to be unaffected by the fire so far ... we have 14 that are partially damaged, and we have right now 360 homes that are complete losses."

Maketa says about 20 deputies worked throughout the night to reverify the list. That said, 79 additional addresses are unable to be listed, generally due to accessibility problems.

Again, here's a link to the full list, which is being updated as the sheriff's office gathers new information:

According to Sheriff Terry Maketa at today's 5 p.m. news conference, the PDF'd version of the list below is already outdated. Since it was assembled, the fire has changed directions and probably has consumed some of the properties originally listed as appearing "unaffected."

Maketa urges the public to click on the link below, as it is a "live" document — in other words, workers in his office are updating it as they come upon new information. (That said, a crush of web traffic has overwhelmed this link in the last half hour, so please be patient.)

At 4:43 p.m., the El Paso County Sheriff's Office released via Twitter a list of residences affected by the Black Forest Fire. According to our count, 92 homes have been confirmed as "total losses," with another five noted as having been partially damaged.

Here's a screen shot from the first page of the list:

The PDF is 10 pages long, as it also lists homes that appear unaffected. Here it is in full:
