SILVERTHORNE, Colo. – Firefighters today declared the 86-acre Ptarmigan Fire 100 percent contained following additional moisture across the area over the past several days. 

With the fire 100 percent contained, the Dillon Ranger District is lifting the closure of the burned area and trails leading into the burned area. Forest officials caution the public that there is an additional risk of falling trees and rocks in and around a burned area following a wildfire.

“We appreciate the close coordination among the many agencies and organizations involved in the Ptarmigan Fire response, particularly the Summit County Sheriff’s Office and Summit Fire and EMS,” said Deputy Dillon District Ranger Chris Stewart. “We also appreciate the support and patience of the community.”  

Firefighters will continue to patrol and monitor the burned area over the next several weeks. 

A Ptarmigan Fire community debrief featuring the Summit County Sheriff’s Office, Summit Fire and EMS, and the U.S. Forest Service will be held Oct. 21 beginning at 6 p.m. at Silverthorne Town Hall, 601 Center Circle.
