I just noticed that you can see the Weston Pass fire on CDOT. Fairplay camera has two images, one shows the fire. Antero Junction has a camera with 4 images and on one of them you can really see the fire, it's a little tricky to click on the camera because it's under the road closed circle. Just thought others would be interested. http://www.cotrip.org/map.htm#/default? ... raId=10816 Image

These videos are not from the Weston fire, but the Spring fire down south. This really opened my eyes to how fast a fire can consume something. I kept thinking I would see it slowly consume the cabin and shed, but it was like an explosion. Unreal and very eye opening and scary.

Oh my!!! At first, I expected them to be time-lapses, but they're not! Very sobering.



Great photo, mtree. Thanks for letting us use it in the scanner team forum.

Just saw an Colorado Army National Guard Chinook Helicopter fly over my house making a beeline for the Weston Pass Fire. I guess they are either delivering much needed supplies or perhaps more help. Whatever it was, it/they were needed in a hurry.

At the closure of 285 southbound can one get onto 9 south and then to 24 to get back to 285 (the detour that was used a few years back when 285 was closed due to so much rain)? I can't tell from Cotrip if that route is accessible. Thank you.

You mean by way of Hartsel? Yes, it is open. On a trip we were going to take, it added only 20 minutes, a lot less than I expected.

No, not yet, but we plan to. That's what I have been seeing recommended as a detour.

July 4, 2018 Evening Update

Today’s Fire Activity #westonpassfire

Containment on the fire has increased to 15%. The increase is on the north and northeast portion of the fire (Division D).

Today was another challenging weather day with a cold front predicted to create gusty erratic winds. Temperatures today warmed quickly into the mid 70s and relative humidity dipped to 10%. Showers developed in the vicinity of the fire early afternoon but produced no significant moisture. At 4:00 pm, winds shifted from the west to east-northeast. This marks the first time since Weston Pass Fire began that winds have come out of the east. This is good news for the Campground of the Rockies (CORA) as the winds are pushing fire away from US Hwy 285. However, these strong easterly winds are predicted for the next couple of days and now have compromised containment lines on the west side of the fire (Divisions A and Z).

The fire responded as predicted to the easterly wind shift and crossed primary control lines on the western portion (Division Z). For safety reasons firefighters moved to their predetermined safety areas. Due to the weather conditions, resources did not conduct firing operations today. The visible smoke columns were from increased fire activity after the wind shift.

Information Briefing: There will be a public briefing at 2:00 PM outside at Prather’s Grocery Store, 301 US Hwy 285, Fairplay. Public Information Officers will conduct these briefings on a daily basis.

Closures and Public Safety: A closure is in place one mile south of Fairplay at the junction of US Highway 285/State Highway 9 to all traffic, except local residents or landowners. A total closure is in place from the junction of US Highway 285/County Road 22 to Antero Junction. For up to date information visit http://www.cotrip.org. Evacuation status may change and evolve. For up to date information, please visit http://www.parkco.us.

Fire Statistics:
Location: 9 miles south of Fairplay, CO Percent Contained: 15%
Start Date: June 28, 2018 Total Personnel: Approximately 484
Size: 10,727 acres Cause: Lightning

Resources Include: Three Type 1 hand crews, 9 Type 2 hand crews, 14 engines, and 2 dozers
