Elk Creek Fire Department

From the US National Weather Service Denver/Boulder Colorado:
"Near record high temperatures are expected again today along with
very low humidity so fire danger will remain elevated over the
higher terrain and along the front range."

Our neighboring district, Platte Canyon Fire Protection District, has just lifted their Burn Ban, and Jefferson County does not have one in effect, but we urge you to take utmost care with any outdoor fires, ignition sources, sparks, etc. Thank you for helping keep our community safe!HIGH fire danger in the West Metro district today- which is expected to continue into Monday due to above normal temperatures, low humidity, and potentially gusty winds. As we saw from the #DeerCreekCanyonParkFire - fuel (vegetation) is dry and ready to burn.
Let’s be careful out there.

Great news from the #DeerCreekCanyonParkFire: it is 100% contained and residents on Grizzly and Cougar will be allowed back home soon (be ready to prove residency at checkpoints). Please listen for more information from the Jefferson County Sheriff's Office and fire PIO Stacee Martin.

Thank you to everyone who's worked so hard to contain and knock this fire down.
