Ditch Creek Fire Update for Saturday, August 18, 2012
The Ditch Creek Fire burning on the San Isabel National Forest near Beulah, Colorado was declared controlled at 2:15 today.
The Incident Commander reported that the fire has received rain several times this week and there was no visible smoke showing this afternoon. However, while the fire has been declared controlled, the possibility remains that isolated spots, in the fire's interior, are holding heat, and the fire may not be completely out yet. While it is not likely, small areas of heat may produce light smoke until the fire area receives a significant amount of rainfall.
This will be the final update on The Ditch Creek Fire, unless significant activity occurs.
