Incident Photo for the Plumtaw Fire

 The Plumtaw fire was first reported at around 1pm on May 17th roughly 7 miles north of the town of Pagosa Springs, Colorado. The fire was mapped at 727 acres on Thursday afternoon, which shows a reduction in acreage based on more accurate mapping. Fire personnel have focused efforts on the northeast corner near Fourmile Road (NFSR 634), protecting the Fourmile Creek watershed and Lost Valley Subdivision and keeping the fire north of Plumtaw Road (NFSR 634). The fire is burning in Ponderosa pine, Gambel oak, and mixed conifer.

Stage 1 fire restrictions are in effect on the San Juan National Forest and other area lands. See the "Announcements" tab for more information.

The Plumtaw Fire is scheduled to transition back to the local unit on Thursday, June 2.

With no recent lightning, the cause of the Plumtaw fire is under investigation.
