Evacuation orders lifted outside the fire perimeter

Evacuation orders have been lifted for Custer County and Pueblo County residents near Wetmore, with the exception of those inside the fire perimeter.

Highway 96 and Highway  67 are now open, however vehicles will not be allowed to stop south of Wetmore where the damage is visible from the road.

There are now about 300 firefighters working to put the fire out.  It is still estimated at 2,100 acres but that number hasn't grown since yesterday.  Containment is estimated at 65 percent.

The cause of the fire remains under investigation.
