July 1, 2012 – Colorado Fires 30% Contained: Making gains against the most destructive wildfire in Colorado history, crews kept a wary eye on weather Saturday that was becoming warmer and drier as National Guard troops were deployed to help local police get things back to normal.
“The weather is making progress in a bad direction. Hotter, drier, with a chance of thunderstorms in the afternoon. Winds will shift from one direction to another,” said Incident Commander Rich Harvey. (See the related post on fire and rain in the northeast).
