Cold Creek Fire Information
Smokejumpers and a falling crew cleaned out areas north of Highway 12 in the steep draws, dropping snags and burning trees to stabilize the area above the highway. Other crews worked to close of the northeast corner building fire line from the Sand Ridge Trail down towards the highway as well as keeping fire north of Clear Creek. A lot of good work was accomplished throughout the day as crews began to mop up inward one to two hundred feet along many parts of the fire line in efforts to further secure those portions of containment lines. Hot spots and torching may continue within the perimeter of the footprint of the fire as pockets of unburned fuel ignite over the next few days during warmer and drier periods. Crews and other resources are being released from the incident as appropriate as the fire activity is becoming more reduced. The reduction in the overall acreage of the fire is due to better mapping.
