The final containment for the 400-acre Brush Creek Fire is 97 percent. The fire burned about 10 miles north of Rifle, Colo. on BLM land.
Containment line will not be built on the remaining 3 percent because of the extremely steep terrain. Firefighters will continue to monitor the fire but do not expect it to grow further.
Rifle Gap is fully open to boating.
