Fire and drought close forests in Colorado and New Mexico

Fire and drought close forests in Colorado and New Mexico

After doubling in size from Saturday to Sunday, the wildfire, 13 miles north of the small city of Durango, covered 20,131 acres and was just 15 percent contained, the service said.

By mid-afternoon, it had crossed Wyoming Highway 230 between Wold Tract and Mountain Home.

County and state roads and US highways that cross Forest Service lands will not be affected by this order.

Meanwhile, a fire in southern Wyoming that burned 8.2 square miles (21 square kilometers) has destroyed some structures.

"The two fires burning on the forest isn't necessarily what propagated the closure, but it is a result of the same conditions that exist". The objective of the closure is to protect natural resources and public safety due to the danger of wildland fire. There were pre-evacuation orders in other areas along Wyoming's border with Colorado as well. The red line around the 416 Fire was the perimeter at 10:12 a.m. MDT June 11.

Evacuees are being asked by Albany County to email ema@co.albany.wy.us with accurate contact information so that consistent information sharing can be maintained. On top of that, human-caused fires usually affect regions close to population centers.

Dry weather will continue until Thursday, he said, when light thunderstorms and showers could occur.

Todd Pechota's Type 1 Incident Management Team is handling both fires. The Ute Fire has burned 36,740 acres.

The U.S. Forest Service will take a similar action Tuesday, closing the entire 1.8 million San Juan National Forest.

The fire remains at 91 acres but is zero percent contained on Wednesday morning.

On Tuesday, InciWeb, a federal database of USA fires, showed the wildfire was 92% contained, and said Cimarron Canyon State Park will be closed through July 4. On Sunday, efforts were focused on evacuation, public safety and fire assessment.

"There's no way to not know this fire is going on".

Previous evacuations include the communities of Mountain Home, Wold Tract, WyoColo, Foxpark, Gramm, Beehive, and Miller Lake.

The couple said they would like to encourage people to donate to the community foundation serving southwest Colorado.

Voos said people who have been evacuated can not return to their properties to retrieve belongings, as officials need to know that the area is clear.

Because so much of the West's economy depends on tourists who hike, fish and camp on public lands, private businesses are eyeing the closures with concern. This means that forest campgrounds, day use areas, roads, and trails will be closed, including wilderness areas, and that hiking, dispersed camping, and other recreational activities are prohibited.

The United States Forest Service was sharing updates on the fire to Twitter and online.
