    Default How close is the Lower North Fort Fire to the CT?

    Can someone in the area give some reassurances about it... I hope?

    Let's hope this doesn't become another Hayman. Have you seen any indications what percentage is contained? I've been searching, but can't find anything.

    I just called the Jefferson County Sheriff's office information line and asked about the CT. They referred me to the blog and the map online and said they weren't sure if the fire had reached the trail yet.

    I live in Westminster, which is just Northeast of Denver. There's been an absence of news about it this morning, which probably isn't good. It was still very windy until this afternoon by me, and I think there's supposed to be a lot of wind on saturday before a cold front comes in on sunday/monday. Here's a map of it from the denverpost

    Should be more info here later today or by tomorrow: http://inciweb.org/news/

    Type 1 Incident Management Team is just getting settled. Once settled they will probably update InciWeb several times a day.

    Site was updated 15 hours ago. "There has been no growth in the fire over the past two days."
    ...tells me this fire is now behaving unless the winds pick up (which I think they are forecasted to do)

    Update: 100% contained, and precipitation is in the forecast.
