Fire managers anticipated the lightning-caused #StoveFire in the Bookcliffs north of Grand Junction would be fully contained Friday night. The fire did not grow overnight on Thursday and was estimated at 54 acres from more accurate mapping. Despite recent rainfall in some locations, fire officials urge the public to stay aware of local fire restrictions.

The air today is smelling of smoke:

Hazy sky around Colorado Springs due to wildfires elsewhere

https://gazette.com/news/hazy-sky-ar...4b7f08b9e.html

"The Lake Christine fire that has burned more than 10,000 acres near Glenwood Springs is one fire being credited for the smoke, along with the Sugarloaf fire that's burning southeast of Fraser."

We're expecting rain by tomorrow. I hope that clears the air.

The Lake Christine fire near Basalt is now up to 11,800 acres. The containment has dropped from 57% to 38%.

The Indian Valley Fire southwest of Meeker has grown to 7000 acres with 10% containment.
The Sulphur Fire south of Meeker has grown to 635 acres with 5% containment.


No rain in Mesa County, some areas in the high country are thankfully getting some though. Temps in Mesa County have been 100 degrees and looks to stay that way for a few more days.

Got .13" rain near Montrose yesterday evening and marble size hail. A rare cloudy cool morning this morning with light sprinkles. Lightening strikes caused small wildfires near Ouray, Hotchkiss, and Montrose all extinguished.

The West Guard Fire was discovered by a helicopter working the Plateau Fire at approximately 6:00 pm on 7/22 and is currently estimated at 5 acres, burning in Ponderosa pine, oak litter and grass. This fire is located just west of the Glade Guard Station approximately 5 miles west of Benchmark Lookout, in Dolores County. This fire was also started by lightning three-to-four days ago.


There's also a new wildfire on the north rim of the Black Canyon in Delta County caused by lightening. I can see the smoke from my patio.
