Saturday was a busy day for firefighters in Colorado. Uncooperative weather helped grow the High Park from 75,537 to 81,190 by the end of the operational day.
The High Park Fire has proven to be stubborn, with winds fanning growth and containment of the fire dropping last night from 60% to 45%. 75,537 acres have been blackened since June 9th.
Colorado Senator Mark Udall was briefed Friday about efforts to contain the High Park Fire, as well as the strength of the US Forest Service air tanker fleet.
