With a combo of windy, dry and warm conditions for our Wednesday afternoon, a Red Flag Warning has been issued for all counties along and east of the I-25 corridor between 12pm and 7pm this afternoon. PLEASE no outside burning, and if you see smoke, report it as soon as possible! Head over to the Weather tab for more information on the rest of the week.
The East Peak Fire is now 100 percent contained.
Firefighters say there are still some hotspots burning within the perimeter, so while it's officially contained, it's still not fully under control.
The fire remains at 13,572 acres. Its cause is determined to be a lightning strike. Thirteen homes and four outhouses were destroyed by the fire.
