Fern Lake Fire is Now Over 3,500 Acres

 

The forecast is calling for calmer winds today, and this may allow for the use of air support in fighting the Fern Lake Fire in Rocky Mountain National Park. It doubled in size over the weekend due to high winds and dry conditions, fueled by Lodgepole, Ponderosa Pine, and high levels of down and dead beetle kill as well as heavy duff and needle layers. The blaze, which started Oct. 9th, is now 3,584 acres acres and is 20% contained. There were 150 firefighters and 19 engines battling the blaze last night with winds of 70 miles per hour forecast. So far no injuries been reported. One private cabin was confirmed lost in Moraine Park. The fire has been burning since October 9th in steep and rugged terrain.
