Cooks Peak Fire – Extreme Fire Weather Expected (4/29)

Extreme Fire Weather is expected today. 
SW IMT 5 anticipates the POTENTIAL for increased fire activity on the Cooks Peak Fire.  Other risks associated with the fire area include uprooted or snapped trees, downed power lines and blowing ash and dust.  These risks will hinder the firefighting operations and create safety concerns for wildland fire crews.  Air crews will be grounded until the major winds have passed and it is safe to put them back in the air.
Residents in Mora and Colfax County should remain vigilant and alert as wind will drive fire behavior today.
