Grand County Fire Still Burning: Church's Park Fire Photos
The Grand County Fire is Still Burning About 450 Acres But is Not Threatening Any Homes
The Denver Post reports that the Grand County fire, also known as the Church's Park Fire, is still burning, but grew very little overnight and calmed down 'considerably'. It is currently not threatening any homes, but the fire has been found to have been caused by humans.
"We are not getting a lot of movement," said John Bustos, a federal spokesman.
The exact circumstances surrounding the cause of the fire are still under investigation and further details have not been released.
With cooler weather approaching, it is expected that the fire should be under control soon. No evacuation orders have been issued, but a reverse 911 alert was issued to residents to prepare for a possible evacuation.
On Sunday when the fire began, County Road 50 west of U.S. Highway 40 was closed and the Crooked Creek Young Life Camp was evacuated.
Fire departments fighting the blaze include Kremmling, Hot Sulphur, Granby, Grand Lake and East Grand. The departments are under U.S. Forest Service command.
