The East Peak Fire burning in Huerfano County is now 85% contained and has burned 13,521 acres. Officials say the fire will not reach 100% containment until sufficient interior mop-up is complete. Ten handcrews, four helicopters, 28 engines, two dozers, and 15 water tenders remain on scene. As the containment on the fire grows, resources are slowly being released to support other incidents.
