South Fork residents being allowed to return to homes


The Rio Grande County Sheriff has notified citizens of South Fork — especially those living in, but not limited to, the Log Haven, Dakota Park, Ponderosa, Deer Park, Hudson Tract and Sentinel Mountain Estates subdivisions — that they are being allowed to voluntarily return to their homes in an active fire zone and are responsible for their own safety.

The fire is still dangerous and the area is still in pre-evacuation status. Residents could be asked to evacuate again and are asked to be ready to act quickly.

The contact number at Town of South Fork is (719) 873-5512.
