The East Peak fire in Huerfano County is now 10% contained. Fire crews say late Saturday they have also been able to confirm the fire was started by lightning. Right now 317 fire fighters are in the area, working to build lines around the fire which is currently burning on private, forest service and BLM lands.
Fire bosses also say any residents who have been affected by this fire can take any small animals to Noah's Ark in Trinidad instead of a shelter in La Veta due to lack of demand. The contact number for Noah's Ark is 719-680-1063
