A little cloud cover and some cooler temps have helped a bit this morning.

Fire officials have stated that anyone attempting to go around the barriers at the West Fork Fire will be issued a citation.

Rio Grande county health officials are urging that, if smoke is thick or becomes thick in your neighborhood, please remain indoors. Limit outdoor activity when moderate-heavy smoke is present; especially those with heart diseases, respiratory illnesses, the very young, and the elderly.
