fuels, will create critical fire weather conditions. Similar
conditions are expected again tomorrow though the gusty winds will
occur generally for our northern valleys. Some moisture will move
into the weekend but northern areas may remain dry and gusty so
critical fire weather conditions may continue there.

Over the last 48 hours the Bull Draw fire area saw an increase in overall wind activity along with warm and dry conditions. Seasonal leaf... fall is attributing to additional available fuels in which the fire is spreading. These conditions have lead to an additional 328 acres burned since the last update, bringing the total acreage to 32,084 as of Monday evening. Increased fire activity is expected today, which may produce additional visible smoke in surrounding areas. The public may encounter fire personnel actively involved in suppression operations and should use caution to provide for public and firefighter safety. The public is also advised to slow down and take extreme caution when traveling along the Divide Road.
A fire the size and complexity of the Bull Draw typically requires a “season-ending” event, such as heavy rain and/or snowfall, to be fully extinguished. Until then, responding fire personnel will continue to work diligently to contain the blaze, while contending with the area’s steep and rugged terrain.

A front blew through Mesa County and I mean blew. 30-35 m.p.h. winds all afternoon with gusts to 50 m.p.h. No rain though. Will be mild and dry over the weekend, the 90 degree days might be over for the season.

I left Albuquerque this morning at 6 a.m., rolled through Lizard Head pass around noon, nice little shower there. Montrose-sprinkles. Delta-sprinkles. And good old Grand Junction-hot as heck, wind blowing probably around 25 to 30 m.p.h. UGH.

Bull Draw Fire Update Date: Monday, September 25, 2018
Acres: 36,549 acres as of September 23 at 1800
Containment: 95%
Personnel: 85
Yesterday’s Activity: Containment is now at 95% due to successful firing operations completed on Saturday, Sept 22 and multiple days monitoring fire lines. Wind gusts up to 20 mph were present and served as a strong test of all lines in place along the north and east sides of the perimeter. Fire behavior was moderate and well within the interior. Yesterday’s operations did not require water drops from a helicopter or a reconnaissance flight by an Authorized Unmanned Aircraft Systems (UAS), or drone. Crews continued with snagging operations in aspen stands along Divide Road and around UC Cow Camp. The fire did receive precipitation, but no measurable quantity was observed.


Cache Creek Fire area closure to be lifted on Friday
RIFLE, Colo. - Effective at 12:01 a.m. on Friday, Sept. 21, the Rifle Ranger District of the White River National Forest will lift the Cache Creek Fire emergency area closure and reopen popular hunting areas and trails. Much of the burned area has cooled, but there is still minimal fire activity in the vicinity of the Cache Creek and Battlement Creek drainages.
The Cache Creek Fire is 55% contained, and it continues to smolder in interior fuels. The fire will remain at current containment due to steep, inaccessible terrain located on the southern portion of the fire. The fire continues to be monitored by local fire managers. The public can expect to see smoke on hot, dry days until a season-ending weather event occurs such as multiple days of rain or snow.
“We are glad to be able to lift this closure ahead of the height of hunting season,” said Sarah Hankens, District Ranger. “We ask that hunters and recreationists avoid the areas where residual smoldering may be occurring. Please be aware that hazards such as tree snags and ash pits exist in burned areas.”


#LakeChristineFire update for the week of Sept. 17, 2018:
The Lake Christine Fire was put into monitor status as of Saturday, Sept. 15, 2018. At the moment, suppression operations are not taking place; however, the fire will continue be monitored by firefighters as needed. The Lake Christine Fire will remain at 94% containment until a season-ending weather event occurs like multiple days of rain or snow. Please note, the increase in containment is due to more accurate heat mapping. The remaining uncontained line is located in steep, inaccessible terrain where it is unsafe to place firefighters. No growth has occurred on the Lake Christine fire for several weeks. There will continue to be smoke visible on the fire; however, the visible smokes are located far within the interior of the fire perimeter and are not a threat to containment at this time. Firefighters from the Upper Colorado River Interagency Fire Management Unit (UCR) will continue to patrol the fire as needed
