In some cases, the Black Mountain fire was not hot enough to burn trees, but hot enough to burn needles on lodgepole pines.

The most recent spark was the Black Mountain Fire on August 29. As of Tuesday, employees have now established 91% of control. That fire is one of four still active from this summer’s fire season.

The Black Mountain Fire is about eight miles northeast of Kremling. Crews were attached along the western edge of the fire zone, where firefighters cleared debris and pulled hot spots over the past few days. An uncontrolled section is on the south-eastern appendage which is inaccessible due to steep, rocky terrain.

While the fire is a complete suppression effort, the incident was handed over from the Type 3 team to the Type 4 team on Tuesday. This means workers will have fewer resources, but fires caused by lightning have only grown on a few acres in the past two weeks.

The largest fire currently burning in Colorado is the Morgan Creek Fire. Officials said on September 15 that the light-glazed fire 15 miles north of Steamboat Springs is 7,509 acres and is 24% contained. This fire has spread in only four acres in a month.

Sylvan Fire, 3,792 acres, and Muddy Slide Fire, 4,093 acres, are both over 80% with minimal activity. Every explosion was caused by lightning.
