Meyer Ranch Fire Contained

The crews on the Meyer Ranch Fire achieved 100% containment yesterday evening as expected. Snowfall in the area, while a favorable change in the weather, raises some concern for the safety of crews as they navigate the slippery rock terrain inspecting the area for hot spots and beginning clean up of tools and fire hose.

The crews expect to finish mop-up today between noon and 2 p.m. At that time, the San Carlos crew will head back to Woodland Park, and Elk Creek Fire and Rescue will continue to monitor the area.
