The largest wildfire in Colorado grew over the weekend and officials on Sunday said the massive blaze now covers 110 square miles of the state’s open forests.
Although the most destructive fire in Colorado’s history was mostly contained last week, the state and parts of the South West were still experiencing a rash of wildfires on Sunday.
Eleven active fires are currently burning through 139 square miles of Colorado, state emergency officials said. The largest burning fire started on June 5 and was combined into a complex fire on June 16.
The West Fork Complex Fire includes the West Fork, Windy Pass and Papoose wildfires and additional personnel were dispatched on Saturday to keep the fire from spreading to residential and tourist areas.
