East Peak Fire Update

Published by at 8:12 am under General Information

East Peak Fire approaching full control. Today reports 70% containment. Wahatoya Valley Rd. 360 expected to open later today. 
 Hot-spots mostly on eastern slope of East Peak, well away from Cuchara Valley.  19 homes were lost on eastern slope. Fire has covered about 13,000 acres total so far.
Hot-shot Teams have been amazing. Hiking, crawling and climbing in. Ground and air support is outstanding.  Everyday I see a new truck in La Veta from states everywhere. Elk Creek, Chino Valley, Bonneville, Palmer Lake, Rapid City, Deer Mountain, Leadville, … too many to name and thank.
