Despite high winds and lower humidity last week crews were able to increase containment of the Beaver Creek Fire from 60 to 68%. The weather did cause the fire to grow to over 59 square miles. Crews are continuing to monitor spot fires in the area and are creating and maintaining fire lines. Closures may affect hunting and recreation near the fire.
