The residents of the poudre canyon area just can't seem to catch a break.
Mudslides from all the rain this weekend shut down many roads along Highway 14 and up in the Poudre Canyon.
These are the same residents that had homes devastated by the high park fire....and now a new kind of disaster.
This gate is the start of what used to be the driveway to yoko frank's house...and now it looks like a mud bath.
"Because of fire. Mudslide because of fire,"said Yoko Frank.
The fire came within inches of Yoko's house...it burned all the way around scorching trees and leaving burn marks onher hand crafted decorations.
The glass case that went over this well completely shattered as flames got close.
"I just am so happy to be home...until rain comes...it is still OK. just staying here if I don't try to go to town."
Because the fire came so close and burned up vegetation all around her house...the rain just carried rock and mud straight down the property.
The only way out is down...and at this point...leaving by foot is the only option.
"I can stay if I need to."
Crews worked tirelessly all day long to clear the mud on the poudre canyone highway.
Three times this weekend highway fourteen was shut down because of the massive amounts of mud running down the foothills all because the fire burned vegetation that stops land slides.
In a press release put out by the U.S. Forest Service one home was lost because of these mudslides and others have been damaged.
