Mullen Fire Wildfire
Announcements – 10/2/2020

Today, in several areas around the Mullen Fire, firefighters continue to create fuel breaks by removing fuels between roads and the main body of the fire. Logging operations are reducing heavy fuels around the Rambler, Foxborough and Fox Park areas.

West of Albany, burnout operations are gradually moving west along the 513 and 542 Roads. On the south, burnouts are continuing along the north sides of Colorado Hwy. 127 and Colorado Hwy. 125. In all areas of the fire, aerial firefighters are supporting personnel on the ground.


Fire managers’ goal is full suppression of the Mullen Fire. Firefighters will extinguish the fire as soon as possible, and keep it as small as possible, while reducing risks to the public and firefighters.

The active behavior of both the Mullen Fire and Cameron Peak Fire is creating increasing smoke impacts to southern Wyoming and northern Colorado. To see today’s Smoke Outlook please go to the link below this article. 


An infrared measurement of the fire is being made today. When that new perimeter is available, our Story Map will automatically show it, along with the Cameron Peak Fire. This interactive map includes features to look up your address and measure the distance to the fire – or between the fires. See it here at: https://arcg.is/1mnyXL
