There is a Multi-Mission Aircraft flying over Grand Lake at this time to help assist with the scope of the fire and provide fire command up to the minute information that they can get to the firefighters on the ground. Drone use will interfere with this important activity; no drones in the area.

The American Red Cross is still assisting residents that are in the shelter and are prepared to provide additional sheltering this evening if required.
Grand County Sheriff’s Office, Grand County EMS and all five of the Fire Districts were prepared for a busy weekend and have additional crews standing by in the event that they are needed.
