Smoke jumpers have been pulled from another wildfire burning on the Grand Mesa.

Eight Smoke Jumpers had been fighting the Clover Fire near Colbran. The fire was reported around 11:30 on Wednesday and has burned over 220 acres. Since there's no road access, two air tankers and a chopper were also fighting the fire. The jumpers are hoping to meet later today to make a decision on whether or not they'll start work to suppress the flames

The fire is burning on BLM land.

No structures are currently being threatened. The fire is two miles from the closest land owners.
