New Fire In The Flat Tops

A lightning started fire is burning in the Flat Tops Wilderness near Trapper Lake, 46 miles east of Meeker. The fire was reported Friday, but due to smoke from other wildfires in the area, crews were not able to locate the blaze until Wednesday. Crews are now focusing on putting the 113 acre fire out as quickly as possible.  Until further notice all Trappers Lake and Himes Peak campgrounds will be closed for public safety, and no traffic will be permitted on Trappers Lake Road, also known as Forest Road 205, from the intersection of Rio Blanco County Road 8 to Trappers Lake Lodge.
