Saturday morning, reports out of Custer County say the Adobe Fire is 95 percent contained.

The fire never grew to more than 85 acres.

Fire crews said that lightning started this blaze, which was first spotted by a Forest Service plane en route to fight the Spring Fire.

Saturday, crews are continuing to use hose lays and hand tools to mop up hot spots. According to county officials, demobilization of resources will start soon.

All pre-evacuations in both Fremont and Custer Counties are now lifted. This includes the area south of County Road 15 in Fremont County to the Custer County line, as well as the Adobe Creek, Trinity Ranch, and TV Hills subdivisions in Custer County.

The county said residents may still see smoke in the immediate area of the fire.
