No activity to report from the Decker Fire, burning 9 miles south of Salida. The fire is still listed at 846 acres.
Increased cloud cover and calmer winds kept fire activity to a minimum. The fire remains on national forest lands and primarily in the Wilderness.
New aerial footage of the fire has been posted on the Heart of the Rockies Radio Facebook page and on www.heartoftherockiesradio.com.
Crews will continue to monitor the fire and allowing fire to play its natural role to promote forest health and resiliency.
The Decker fire is being managed to remove these high-risk fuels from the landscape for ecological benefit and to reduce the risk for catastrophic wildfires in the future.
A Type 3 helicopter from Montana remains assigned to the incident and remains available, should the need arise.
The fire will remain visible from Salida and the Highway 50 corridor.
There are no evacuations or closures at this time.
