Officials evacuated the Clear Creek RV Park and Canyon Side Condos in Golden, Colo., Tuesday night because of a wall of water heading into the city from an ice jam that broke apart on Clear Creek.

The water was four feet high when it hit the mouth of Clear Creek Canyon at about 7:30 p.m. according a city of Golden spokeswoman. By 10:30 p.m., the water was flowing and while it did rise, it did not cause the flooding officials were concerned about in the suburb in the foothills on the west side of Denver, TV station Fox31 reported.

Evacuation orders were lifted for the RV park at the end of 10th Street and Canyon Side Condos west of U.S. Highway 6 along the creek.
