The Hayman fire is now estimated to have burned 135,889 acres. According to the noon news, the fire is burning one mile from Rampart Range Road, a trigger point for evacuation of some of the towns southeast of the fire. Fire crews have been pulled off of the north side of the fire to help out those battling the more active eastern edge. Also, another Type I team has been added, bringing the total up to three now. (I understand that just having two Type I teams on one fire was pretty unprecedented.)

Thankfully, winds are calm and the air is fairly clear here, which is good news for us!

The Douglas County web site hasn’t been updated since last night. Augh. But looking at the evacuation page most locations listed have now been evacuated.
