Yesterday’s precipitation along with today’s predicted moisture and cooler temperatures have been good for keeping the fire in its place. With more rain forecasted for this coming week, there should be minimal fire activity.

Firefighter crews finished all chipping work along the north side of the fire. Many of the firefighters have been demobilized and are heading back to their home units. Remaining crews will be monitoring the fire today with the local fire resources. They are briefing the new team on work that has been completed as well as locations of structure protection supplies and hose lays. The structure protection group finished all the assessments and have shared that information with the Park County Fire Protection District to implement into their county structure protection plan.
