The Burro Fire grew to about 500 acres by Sunday morning in a remote area of the San Juan National Forest about 23 miles northeast of Dolores. Firefighters looked to gain a foothold on its southern end to launch an offensive.

Firefighters from the U.S. Forest Service and several local fire departments responded about 4 p.m. Friday to the wildfire, about 5 miles south of Colorado Highway 145 along the Bear Creek trail.

The fire scorched 3 to 5 acres by 5 p.m. Friday. By 6:30 p.m., the fire grew to 40 acres, said Dolores District Ranger Derek Padilla, who was at the scene. Saturday night, the fire, which was burning in ponderosa pine and fir on a northeast-facing wall, was mapped at 493 acres by a multi-mission aircraft. The fire rapidly moved downslope and southward into Bear Creek drainage, Padilla said, and on Saturday was burning on both sides of Bear Creek and spreading northeast. Containment was zero percent.

“We are working to establish an anchor point on the south end of the fire so we can engage,” said Pat Seekins, Dolores District fire management officer.

Campers were evacuated, and hikers have been directed to safety, but no structures or private land were threatened, according to the Dolores Ranger District of the San Juan National Forest.

San Juan National Forest technician James Godwin was stationed Saturday at the closed Forest Service Roads 561 and 350 near the Transfer Campground. Dispersed campers, including a large ATV group, were told to leave.

These fires rage like monsters when they get going it's amazing.

They say "Zero containment" Hope all around there are okay.

Politics only interests me from a psychological view point.
Other than that, I couldn't careless about it.

Burro Fire doubles in size to 1,000 acres; forest plans to close

Fire poses challenge in steep terrain, older stands of timber

The Burro Fire grew to about 1,000 acres by Sunday afternoon in a remote area of the San Juan National Forest about 23 miles northeast of Dolores, and was expected to grow as dry conditions continue. Firefighters looked to engage the fire on its southern end.

The San Juan National Forest announced late Sunday that it plans close the forest to most entry this week to protect natural resources and public safety because of the fire danger.

The closure order is expected to be signed Tuesday and remain in effect until the forest receives sufficient moisture to improve conditions, the forest’s acting public affairs officer, Cam Hooley, said in a press release Sunday night.

“The closure order will prohibit entry into the San Juan National Forest, including entry by the general public, most administrative entry by Forest Service employees, and most uses authorized under Forest Service permits and contracts,” the press release said. Under the Stage 3 closure, campgrounds, day use areas, roads and trails will be closed, Wilderness areas, hiking, dispersed camping and other recreational activities will be prohibited. Exemptions might be granted on a case-by-case basis with a written authorization from the Forest Service, which would include specific requirements for fire prevention. Exemptions must be requested from the appropriate District Ranger (below). Federal, state, or local officers conducting specific duties are exempt.

The McPhee Reservoir boat ramp and marina will likely remain open, but no shoreline use will be allowed, the press release said.

RE: New Wildfire in Colorado Rapidly Growing: Burro Fire doubles in size 1,000 acres
Maybe there were some of those sex dens out there.

"The Burro Fire, named for a nearby mountain, started June 8 and burns 5 miles up the Bear Creek drainage northeast of Dolores.

SIZE OF FIRE: 1,000 acres, with no containment. It is expected to burn for weeks.


FIREFIGHTERS: The fire is transitioning from a Type 3 federal firefighting crew to a robust Type 1 crew, managed with the larger 416 Fire north of Durango. The two fires may merge. About 130 firefighters are battling the Burro Fire. Headquarters will be in Dolores."


Fire Restrictions:
Stage 2 fire restrictions are in place throughout Southwest Colorado.
Prohibited acts include:
No campfires, including in developed campgrounds and recreation areas. No charcoal or coal barbecues or wood-burning stoves. Gas, pressurized cannister powered stoves with shut-off valves are allowed if they are at least 3 feet away from flammable material such as grass.
No open burning, burn barrels or agricultural burns without prior approval.
No smoking, except for in a building or vehicle.
No welding, use of open-flame torches, pipe-fitting, or metal grinding without a fire-watch official present with proper mitigation tools.
Oil and gas welding and cutting operations can be done only in an area with a radius of at least 20 feet from all flammable materials.
No use of equipment with an internal combustion engine without a properly installed spark arresting device, including chain saws, ATVs and generators.
No use of chain saws without a spark-arresting device and a readily accessible fire extinguisher and shovel.
No explosives such as fireworks and tracer round bullets.
Note that agencies such as the Forest Service may have different restrictions.

I live here and the two fires are expected to merge and head towards
Purgatory resort. I was thinking we were going to evacuate but the
threat for us is over thanks to the wind changing. Thousands of peopkle
are still in danger of losing their homes. So far the fireman have done a
great job from keeping a single structure from burning despite the enormous
size of these fires.

Stage 3 fire restrictions start tomorrow morning

All San Juan forest is closed until July 31st.

Major fines and court for even walking into the woods

Normally I'm against these kind of restrictions...but this is needed.
