PRESS RELEASE
CABIN FIRE
August 22, 2019 - 10:30pm

On August 22, 2019, at about 7:30 PM, the Grand County Communication’s Center received a smoke report east of Devil’s Thumb Ranch, in unincorporated Grand County.

The East Grand Fire Protection District #4, Grand County Sheriff’s Deputies, and the Grand County Office of Emergency Management responded to the area and located a small wildland fire. The cause of the fire is undetermined at this time. East Grand Fire crews assessed the fire with the assistance of a nearby USFS helicopter and determined the fire to be approximately 100 x 200 yards in small fuels on private lands, east of the waterboard road. Winds were calm, and as expected the fire was not growing at this time. There are no pre-evacuations or evacuations on place, no structures have been lost, and there have been no injuries. The High Lonesome subdivision is approximately 1 mile away from the fire; however, there is no immediate risk or need for evacuations at this time.

At approximately 9PM, jurisdiction of the fire was transferred from East Grand Fire Chief Todd Holzwarth to Sheriff Brett Schroetlin. Sheriff Schroetlin has appointed Deputy Sheriff/Fire Management Officer Paul Mintier as the Incident Commander for the Cabin Fire.

The East Grand Fire District, Grand Fire Protection District, Colorado Division of Fire Prevention and Control, US Forest Service, and BLM Fire will be assisting with continued firefighting efforts on Friday, and additional updates will be provided. A US Forest Service Helicopter will also be assisting and additional aerial assets may be used as necessary.

Grand County, in cooperation with your local fire districts, and our state and federal partners consistently monitor fire conditions during wildfire season, and restrictions are initiated when there is scientific evidence to support them. Currently, the fire conditions do not warrant restrictions; however, they will continually be monitoring during and after this fire.

As a reminder, please only call 911 for emergencies only. We will be providing information on this fire as new updates become available, and through your cooperation this allows our Dispatch staff to focus on the safety of fire crews in lieu of unnecessary 911 calls.
