I'm sure he probably meant the flames and visible part of the fire. sure it will take a while for embers to burn out.

If you have some spare cash, or a pantry with just a FEW too many items, or maybe are itching to replace some appliances...

The fire behavior that was observed today was primarily creeping ground fire with some areas of smoldering in heavier fuels.

From the Rocky Mountain Area Coordination Center (http://gacc.nifc.gov/rmcc/links/fire_info/index.html):

Fires Managed to Achieve Multiple Resource Objectives

Full Suppression Strategy

Lower North Fork: (CO-JEX) IMT1 (Harvey) 1 mile E of Foxton, CO. Evacuations have been lifted for approximately 720 homes. However, 180 homes remain under evacuation orders. All fixed wing assets released from the incident, 3 rotor wing assets remain. Initial Attack resources have also started demobilizing or have demobilized. Minimal perimeter growth is expected over the next 24 hours. John Peterson, PSICC Deputy Forest Supervisor, is the Agency Administrator for the FS.

Acres: 4,140 (less than 5 acres on USFS)
Containment: 45%
Personnel: 778
USFS Personnel: 83
Estimated Containment: 1 April

Significant actions: CTF-1 (Urban Search and Rescue) continues to search for missing person. IREA worked to restore power to homes. Crews made significant progress constructing fire line. Colorado Governor John Hickenlooper visited the fire today. Senator Udall and Congressman Coffman may visit the fire tomorrow.
Actions for tomorrow: Crews will continue to construct containment line and evacuation zones will be reevaluated to try and allow for remaining residents to return to their homes. Mop up will begin where applicable.

Concerns: Fire burning in populated WUI area. Steep dissecting terrain, low relative humidity, low fuel moistures and heavy fuel loading. Strong and erratic winds are forecasted for the weekend. Type I team feels confident that current strategy will allow for rapid progress on containment lines.
Fire Information can be followed through the JFCO blogspot: http://jeffcosheriff1.blogspot.com/
Here's hoping. Starting to gust up here.

Ewwww... pinecam.com summary info. Rich Harvey seems like a straight shooter and it ain't his first rodeo.
Quote:
4:00 UPDATE:

Crews are increasing and widening the fire lines to prevent any spreading over the weekend. Power is being restored in the area. It is still spotty, however.

Mark Techmayer - Jefferson County

Things went well - we had a great day - holding at 70% containment. Evacuation zones have not changed. The search for Ann Appel continues search and rescue teams have hit another 150 acres today. IREA, when the fire started, had 267 homes that were without power - 211 homes have been restored with 56 left to go.

Nine patrol cars escorted approximately 30 property owners back in to see their homes and that will continue tomorrow as well.

The distressing news is that the weather forecast just changed. It will be windier and warmer sooner in the day tomorrow than originally thought.


RICH HARVEY - Incident commander -

There is still a threat for the SW winds to push the fire to the NE into the areas that are evacuated. There have been "100's of thousands" of spot fires. We have been cutting line, mopping up and focusing on infrared aerial flights at night. We are watching for heat signatures from the air and then verifying that information with crews on the ground.

The winds will be increasing in speed, the relative humidity will be dropping and the temperatures will be rising - bringing us to a return to the conditions that started this situation and could trigger extreme fire behavior. Troops are on the ground and ready to go should something develop.

70% is not 100% and 100% is not a guarantee. There is a south facing brush slope and we are keeping a very close eye on fuel- topography and winds on that edge - that is our big concern. The last lick is always the hardest. The easy part has been done - the tough part remains.

The winds on Saturday will help us find any spots we have missed. Getting through that will assist toward containment - we will then feel comfortable that the containment lines will hold despite the winds.

Sunday is supposed to be worse than Saturday - red flag warning - sustained winds of over 25 mph. It is in the forecast - it is not happening now.

We are comfortable with the resources that we have. Their focus and shift assignments may change as we prepare for the wind event - we have about 500 troops out working right now.

Next update will be provided at 7:30 a.m. on Saturday morning
