FORT COLLINS, Colo. – Some Fort Collins residents were told to shelter in place for nearly five hours due to police activity near their homes this Christmas.

Residents from Wyoming Street south to Illinois Street, and from Arizona Street east to Nevada street, were told by the Larimer County Sheriff’s Office they needed to shelter in place and lock their doors and windows due to police activity at a home near Iowa Street in the Timber Ridge North community.

Few details about what the incident is about were released, but a deputy with the sheriff's office told Denver7 over the phone deputies were attempting to serve felony arrest warrant on a man.

Displaced were told to seek shelter at the community clubhouse at Arizona Street and Michigan Street, deputies said in an update Saturday afternoon. The situation is still ongoing.

They also advised residents in the area not to call 911 unless it was for an emergency.

The situation was resolved just before 4 p.m. and the shelter in place was lifted.
