Monument Fire: Day 19

Information in this post comes from InciWeb.

It has now burned 30,526 acres (with an extra 1,527 acres burned in Mexico) and is at 98% containment, with 70 people on-site to fight what remains.  A major difference between now and 8 days ago, is that now the growth potential has gone from “extreme” to “low,” with its terrain difficulty still viewed as “extreme.”

Monument Fire: Day 11

The information from this post comes from InciWeb.

Since this fire started June 12, 2011, it has grown to 28,236 acres (“1,527 acres within Mexico”) with a containment at 59%, with 1,311 men and women out there working it.  What makes this a very bad situation is that both the potential to grow and the terrain difficulty are at extreme when it comes to take care of the fire.

This one will be interesting to see how it plays out.
