Whitaker Fire Contained

Crews have contained but not extinguished the Whittaker Flats fire, which is burning above I–70 near Cameo.

The mop up work continues as all but thirty of the 120 personnel assigned to the fire have been taken off duty.

In all, 1,016 acres have burned.

At times, smoke and flames can be seen from the interstate and resources from this fire may be assigned to assist with the New Castle Fire.
