The Pipeline Fire on Fisher’s Peak started yesterday and is burning in steep, rocky terrain. Multiple units responded from in and around the Trinidad region, but officials say it’s been difficult to access the fire. The active fire has shown extreme activity on the entire perimeter of the blaze, though no evacuations have been ordered.

The Trinidad Chronicle-News reports at least three small air drops have been made. The paper also reports the Las Animas-Huerfano Counties District Health Department has issued a smoke advisory for the area.
