Buffalo Fire in Summit County forces thousands to evacuate

Entire San Juan National Forest To Be Closed To Public

Entire San Juan National Forest To Be Closed To Public

Just north of the Colorado border, a blaze near Laramie, Wyoming, exploded in size Tuesday, prompting the evacuation of numerous homes in several small communities and closing roads, the AP reported.

West of Denver, near Ski Country, another 1,400 homes were evacuated. On Wednesday afternoon, the storm was churning up 50 mph winds about 215 miles from Cabo San Lucas.

U.S. Forest Service spokesman Adam Bianchi said the latest fire came within 200 yards of a subdivision that includes condos, apartments and pricey homes. We have seven interagency heavy air tankers fighting the Colorado fires and, through experience, we have learned how to integrate our state resources with our federal, county and municipal resources.

The Buffalo Mountain blaze is one of at least six wildfires burning throughout the state.

The 416 Fire is now 27,420 acres and only 15 percent contained. "Multiple aircraft are actively dropping water and retardant at this time", county fire officials said. "We're not out of the woods by any means, but we've been very fortunate there have not been any homes burned or firefighters hurt".

"The indices our fire team uses to predict fire danger are at historic levels well before we can expect any significant moisture from the seasonal monsoons", said Richard Bustamante, SJNF forest fire staff officer.

A satellite image shows the Burro Wildfire (L) and the 416 Wildfire burning west of Highway 550 and northwest of Durango, Colorado, U.S., June 9, 2018.

Anyone caught violating the order could be found guilty of a Class B misdemeanor and face a fine of $5,000 for individuals or $10,000 for organizations, and/or imprisonment.

"We recognize the conditions are dry and hot", Gov. John HIckenlooper said in a statement. "Our state agencies are here to support you".

"We don't anticipate there being a big push there in that northeastern corner", Knight said.

1,384 homes in Mesa Cortina and Wildernest above Twenty Grand Road have been evacuated while an additional 1,160 homes below Twenty Grand Road were given pre-evacuation notices.

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

Some couples have sparks, but this one has a wildfire.

More than 900 firefighters were dealing with rough and inaccessible terrain, and residents of more than 2,000 homes have been forced to evacuate since the flames ignited June 1. Luber says if the fire gets close enough the interstate may have to close. The Trail Mountain Fire began as a prescribed burn but grew out of control last week.
