There is a Q&D thread for this fire, but it has been going for over a week now.
Currently 13,091 acres and 32% contained.
9 miles southwest of Fairplay, CO.
Pechota’s RM T1 IMT has been managing the fire. They just passed off the Chateau fire back to local management and all personnel are back to Weston ICP.
They have seen very active fire behavior on this fire with flanking, torching and creeping. Fire behavior was moderated yesterday due to some rain but more hot and dry weather is expected over he next few days.
There was an an actual tornado on this fire the other day, not a fire whirl, a tornado.
