Two fires started up in Western Colorado yesterday. The Brush Creek Fire is burning in Garfield County north of Grand Junction and was at one hundred acres yesterday. The fire is burning in thick brush on BLM lands with limited access. Firefighters are working on protections for seven structures near the fires, and they are trying to prevent the fire from burning over the Pike Ridge. Another fire started near Craig and reached almost one hundred acres, burning mostly on a hay field. Crews gained control of the fire last night. The Brush Creek Fire underlined the Garfield County Sheriff’s Decision to stick with stage two fire restrictions as other counties on the Western Slope are reducing their fire restrictions. The Gunnison county commissioners lowered restrictions from stage two to stage one this week, and the Delta County Commissioners lifted restrictions completely. Montrose and Ouray Counties are under Stage One restrictions while San Miguel County is still under Stage Two restrictions.
