Wildfire Danger

Even though Colorado hasn't been hit with any major wildfires so far, fire managers are warning that moisture levels in trees and vegetation remain below normal this year.

A new report by the Bureau of Land Management finds that a stretch of land from Cortez and Durango in southwestern Colorado to an area near the Bridger-Teton National Forest in Wyoming, has some of the highest potential in the West for above average fire activity this year.

The U.S. Forest Service is most concerned this month for an area from Grand Junction south to Durango and into the San Luis Valley. The L shaped area didn't get the kind of moisture that most of the rest of Colorado enjoyed this year.
