The Red Canyon Fire started on 8-12-2013 at 1357 hrs. and was caused by lightning.
The Red Canyon Fire is now being managed by a local Type 3 Incident Management Team. The fire is 100% contained and remains at 390 acres. The fire will continue to be patroled and mopped up.
The local weather may continue to bring afternoon winds associated with passing thunder cells. Do not be alarumed when interior burning occurs with associated smoke inside the fire line as there are "green" unburned islands well inside the fire perimeter.
Resources on the fire include two Type II hand crews of 20 persons each, two engines and two water tenders and additional overhead for a total of 70 personnel. The fire command post has moved back to the Carbondal Fire Station at 300 Meadowood Dr. in Carbondale.
County Road 115 is now open.
