Buffalo Mountain Fire Near Silverthorne Prompts Evacuations

No one has been hurt and no structures have burned down, Graham said. Firefighters, with help from aircraft, got a quick jump on a fire near Silverthorne after it was reported Tuesday and have managed to keep it from spreading beyond about 91 acres in heavy timber, including trees killed by pine beetles.

Exceptions to the order include government employees on official duty, firefighters and private property owners, special-use permit holders, contractors, Native American tribes and others whose activities do not raise the risk of wildfire. Temperatures will remain dangerously hot yet for cities like Palm Springs, Las Vegas, and Phoenix, where temperatures could reach 110 degrees. Sara McLaughlin and Michael Kramer had to move their June 9 wedding to another location due to the fire, according to their wedding website.

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. A pre-evacuation order was issued Wednesday evening for 207 residences and two businesses on the south end of the fire.

The Forest Service also advised all dispersed campers near the fire area relocate to other areas of the forest. "We haven't received any information on that yet".

"You never know with fire behavior how long you are going to be down there".

Another day of hot, dry and windy weather is expected in southern Wyoming, where a wildfire has been burning virtually unabated this week. The operational plan will be to continue to focus on public and firefighter safety, evacuations, assessments, and structure protection.

Todd Pechota's Type 1 Incident Management Team is handling both fires.

Cibola National Forest and National Grasslands officials said Monday that the shutdown - starting as early as Friday - will remain in effect pending a significant amount of moisture and subsequent decreases in fire danger. Years ago, he said fire departments were hesitant to commit resources to fighting every fire, and launching a coordinated response to a major blaze could take up to two days.

(UPDATE): According to the Albany County Sheriff's Facebook page, Wyoming Highway 230 is now closed at Fox Park and no traffic will be allowed past that point. Growth this afternoon was primarily to the east. It is estimated to be about 100 acres.

"We're sad that the forest is closed, but there are a handful of people who just don't get it and walk away from their campfire", said Debbie Packard, who works at the Canon Del Rio resort and spa in Jemez Springs, N.M., in the Santa Fe National Forest.
