Badger Creek Fire grows to more than 5,000 acres Tuesday

Entire San Juan National Forest To Be Closed To Public

On Tuesday, San Juan County lifted evacuation orders for 184 homes. The fire only burned about 100 acres (40.5 hectares) but came dangerously close to two densely populated housing developments.

A red flag warning was in effect Thursday, meaning conditions would be hot, dry and windy.

Around 11 a.m Tuesday morning, Summit County Fire & EMS reported a wildfire burning on Buffalo Mountain.

The fire began Tuesday about 2 miles west of Silverthorne, a town with about 4,700 residents and about 65 miles west of Denver.

No structures have been lost since the fire broke out on June 1.

Multiple neighborhoods have been evacuated, including Wildernest and Mesa Cortina, above 20 Grand Road.

He saw the flames taking over the area when he was evacuated Tuesday night and said he was anxious if his home of 15 years would be there when he returned.

"We really just want to go home. We're definitely asking the firefighters to keep their eyes open and their heads up and pay attention to any changes in the weather".

It's burning in the Four Corners region where Colorado, New Mexico, Arizona and Utah meet that is at the center of a large patch of exceptional drought.

Air resources arrived to help the ground-based fire personnel with the Forest Service, Albany County, and Wyoming State Forestry Division. No homes had been destroyed, the Associated Press reports.

About 50 firefighters were battling the blaze initially, but more were on the way, along with heavy air tankers and helicopters.

Incident commander Todd Pechota told evacuated residents Saturday that the situation is "going to get worse before it gets better", the Herald reported.

Most campgrounds, picnic areas, trails, trailheads and forest roads in Mountainair, Sandia and Mount Taylor ranger districts of the Cibola National Forest are closing to all recreational activities indefinitely due to extreme fire danger, the Forest Service announced Monday.

Meanwhile, additional firefighters were headed to Wyoming to work on a wildfire that has exploded in size and prompted evacuations near the Colorado border.

"Under current conditions, one abandoned campfire or spark could cause a catastrophic wildfire, and we are not willing to take that chance with the natural and cultural resources under our protection and care, or with human life and property", said Richard Bustamante, SJNF forest fire staff officer.

Fire crews finally have a handle on the Ute Park blaze burning in northern New Mexico, which has burned more than 57 square miles. Officials are crediting fuel breaks in helping contain the fire, a system that has been in place since 2007.

Graham said earlier that 2,162 structures or homes have been evacuated since the beginning of the fire, and 500 residents are now on pre-evacuation.
