85% contained

and mop up operations are underway. Yes there are still plenty hot spots and fire burning in the interior. However barring any really extreme weather that would blow this back up, containment line around the perimeter probably won’t be breached. They expect 100% containment by tomorrow afternoon.

The weather over the past few days has been cooler and we are apparently back into our afternoon thunderstorm storm track with liberal amounts of rain falling over the region for the past two days. Believe it or not 0.3 tenths of an inch of precip is a lot in our high altitude desert environ. Enough but not enough to trigger floods in the Waldo Canyon burn area. That will be a concern for the next 10-15 years.

Some are being allowed back into the area where it’s safe to do so.

They-firefighters, LE, and community volunteers-have done a remarkable job in short order.
