This incident is no longer being updated.

The 88-acre Deep Creek Fire is 100 percent contained. Firefighters will continue to patrol the perimeter.  

Smoke may continue to be visible from the area and from Highway 9 at times as  pockets of vegetation from within the fire perimeter burn. This is typical following containment and firefighters will take action if needed.  

The White River National Forest and Bureau of Land Management have lifted the closures for the Dice Hill and upper Spring Creek Road areas. The area burned by the fire remains closed.

The Grand County and Summit County sheriff offices have lifted all evacuation and pre-evacuation notices related to the Deep Creek Fire.

The fire has burned a mix of grass, sage, aspen and beetle-killed lodgepole pine primarily on the White River National Forest and on a small amount of private lands northwest of Green Mountain Reservoir, about 15 miles south of Kremmling.

The fire ignited about 4:30 p.m. Wednesday. It was human-caused and is under investigation.
