NUCLA, Colo. (KKCO/KJCT)-- Did you see a lot of smoke south of Grand Junction Thursday?

Fire management officials said it’s from the Bull Draw Fire near Nucla. Crews are monitoring a recent flare-up that’s caused some smoke to be visible from our area.

Fire officials say the combination of hot weather, low humidity and high wind mean more fire activity. They say to expect more smoke over the next few days because of that weather.

The more than 30,000-acre fire is at least 60 percent contained, the Forest Service said Thursday. Crews continue to closely watch the fire for effects from changing weather.

The fire grew approximately 75 acres Thursday, according to the official Bull Draw Fire information Facebook page.
