Lowline Fire in Gunnison County

The Lowline Fire, located approximately 11 miles southwest of Crested Butte, was reported at 8 a.m. Wednesday, July 26, and has grown to 681 acres as of 10 pm last night (7/26).  A Complex Incident Management Team (IMT) will assume command at 6 p.m. this evening.

An interactive map showing mandatory and pre-evacuation areas can be seen HERE.  CDPHE has issued an Air Quality Health Advisory for Wildfire Smoke for central Gunnison County.
The Spot Weather Forecast for the Lowland Fire calls for afternoon and evening showers and thunderstorms are likely today, tomorrow, and Saturday, with gusty outflow winds and lightning the primary concerns. Chances for wetting rains will likely stay under 20% through Saturday, increasing to 40 to 60% Sunday into next week. Today's Haines Index (an indicator of the potential for existing fires to become large fires) is 6 (high).

National Interagency Fire Center increased the National Preparedness Level to Level 3 (also known as PL 3) on July 21 due to an increase in significant fire activity in multiple geographic areas with incident management teams actively engaged and an increase in competition for most national resource types. The Rocky Mountain Area Coordination Center remains at a Preparedness Level 2 (as of this writing).
