Silver Creek Fire Update 8/14/18 17:06

Brief Silver Creek Fire Update:

Fire crews have worked extremely hard today to keep the fire from developing further south. Winds have also assisted the fire crews by pushing the flames back into the fire. We are waiting on updates from the Forest Service and Incident Commanders as to the status of the fire and will get that out when we receive it.

As you may have noticed, there is a huge amount of activity happening in Kremmling today with EMS, OEM, Sheriff's Office, Kremmling PD and the Fire Department. You'll also see folks from The American Red Cross, U.S. Forest Service and other agencies around town.

This is to make sure that, in the event that an evacuation is ordered, there will be absolutely no issues with providing the best possible outcome for our residents. We have worked with the Town of Kremmling, West Grand School District, CSU Extension Hall and so many other partners to be absolutely prepared.

We want to thank everyone that's assisted us in getting everything set up and are ready to act in the event that an evacuation is ordered.

We are still planning to have the Community Briefing at the Old Park Fire Hall at 7pm.

Forest Service information on the fire can be found at https://inciweb.nwcg.gov/incident/5985/
