Crews Still On Site at Highway 16 Fire


Between 100 and 150 firefighters remain at the site the Highway 16 fire north of Eagle sparked on Wednesday.
The crews—made up of both wildland and structural firefighters—are currently monitoring the 5,000 acre property and making sure there are no hotspots remaining.

Firefighters will reevaluate the situation at the end of the day today, according to Bureau of Land Management spokesperson Mallory Eils. A few crews will most likely be released while other firefighters will be left on-duty to patrol.
