Wetmore Wildfire (Custer County near Fremont County) near Hwy-96 and Hwy-67 has already destroyed three structures
(started from one of those) and about 350 homes have been evacuated. This fire was first reported to be about an
acre in size but it has grown quickly since then with the high winds.
When they first reported the size they said about 1 acre, then 30-40 acres, and now I have heard 200 acres.
They closed 22 miles of Hwy-96 (into Pueblo County) from the Pueblo Reservoir to Wetmore due to fire/smoke that has
reached east to Pueblo West.
2 choppers and and 2 hotshot crews ordered to support firefighting ops.
Wetmore schools are holding students because busses cannot access the area.
The Colorado Emergency Operations Center just activated at level 4, monitoring the situation and sending their OEM
field manager to Wetmore to support their emergency manager on site.
Air Quality change pending from the Pueblo County Health Department
Lots more info coming out by the minute.
