Royal Gorge fire now at 100% containment

The Royal Gorge fire is now 100% contained. Fire bosses say crews were able to finish mopping up the perimeter Sunday and were able to declare full containment as of 6 p.m. A spokesperson for the BLM says people in and around Canon City may still see some light smoke in the fire area, but it's no cause for concern, it's only some unburned fuel within the containment lines. Fire resources will also continue to monitor the fire as long as necessary. 

The final estimated size of the fire is 3,218 acres.
