Small Fires Contained

Real Estate Agent with Bachman & Assoc.

Monument Lake Park near Stonewall was evacuated for a short time Wednesday afternoon as winds pushed a 100 acre wildfire.  Two buildings were destroyed before the fire was contained. 

 Another small fire burning 30 miles west of La Veta is "mostly contained", in the Trinchera Ranch region of Costilla County.  Smoke lingers on the horizon from the Spring Creek Fire that still smolders this morning with gusty winds fueling embers.

Good morning Jerry - It is good to hear the fire is being contained. I hope the fire is not anywhere your home.

My family lives in both Stonewall and has ties in the Trinchera area, where my fathers family raised cattle and horses.  It breaks my heart to see any of these area's in danger.
