Entire San Juan National Forest To Be Closed To Public

A new wildfire burning in Colorado's mountains is dangerously close to a ski resort town.

The 416 Fire has burned almost 32,076 acres, but crews have managed to build fire lines strong enough to hold the blaze from reaching any structures. Some of those allowed to return home will remain under pre-evacuation status.

Extreme fire danger forced the closure of several national forests, including San Juan National Forest in Colorado.

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

Dry thunderstorms and gusty winds have expanded a San Juan National Forest wildfire that has forced evacuations of more than 1,900 homes.

The Buffalo fire is burning in an area of unincorporated Summit County near the Wildernest and Mesa Cortina subdivisions - where residents of about 1,400 units were ordered to flee immediately.

The Incident Management Team said a red flag warning will be in effect for areas near the fire from 10 a.m.to 9 p.m. Friday because of the chance of dry thunderstorms and wind gusts up to 40 miles per hour.

"There were big black rolling clouds coming off it and it had gotten to the edge of the forest, right next to the neighborhood", Silverthorne resident Jake Schulman told the Summit Daily. From 1992 to 2012, "the human-caused fire season was three times longer than the lightning-caused fire season and added an average of 40,000 wildfires per year across the United States", researchers wrote in 2017.

According to the report , 24 other states saw increases of more than 30 percent from 1999 to 2016. Asking if they've had suicidal thoughts is not harmful and lets them know you care, she said.


Homes in the 1000 block of County Road 204 at Sailing Hawks - 44 in all - are under pre-evac notice as well, La Plata County government said.

"We were just happy to get back". Forest managers use several criteria to determine when to implement restrictions and closures, including fuel moistures, current and predicted weather, values at risk from wildfire, fire activity levels, and available firefighting resources.

That fire began June 1 and since then, more than 2,100 home have evacuated. No homes had been destroyed, the Associated Press reports. MOre than 900 firefighters were trying to control the blaze, according the AP. Incident Commander Todd Pechota said he plans to bring in more crews to replace outgoing firefighters.

In southern Wyoming, firefighters battled a 17-square-mile (44 square kilometer) fire in the Medicine Bow National Forest that forced the evacuation of almost 400 homes in 10 small communities.

This week, authorities in Arizona, Colorado and New Mexico closed recreational areas and enacted fire restrictions because of the high fire danger. Its cause is not yet known.

Fire grows to 29,147 acresThe 416 Fire grew to 29,147 acres as of Thursday morning.

The Burro Fire, burning 10 miles west of the 416 Fire, has grown to 3,400 acres and has no containment.
