Stewart Hole Fire Update Wednesday

From a Press Release today;

It was a quiet night for the Stuart Hole Fire last night.  Patrol crews monitored the fire throughout the evening.  The fire remains at 227 acres with 45% containment. The plan for today is to focus on containment and begin mop-up operations in some areas.  Structure protection remains a priority as needed. This is still an active fire and smoke will be seen in the area for several days.

In addition to the 120 firefighters on the ground, the Type 3 helicopter will be working the fire again today.  The SEAT (Single Engine Air Tanker) remains available if needed. Winds are expected in the area again today.  A cold front is expected this afternoon bringing lower temperatures and higher humidity.  Thunderstorms are possible including the chance for some rain later in the day.

There are no active evacuations at this time; however, residents in the area are ask to stay alert and be prepared to evacuate if conditions change. Roads in the area are restricted to residents only. (This includes media.) No injuries have been reported.  No new structures have been damaged other than the two to three structures previously reported. Fire restrictions are in effect in Larimer County including Forest Service land.  The public is reminded to be extra careful with any open flame.
