The Galena Fire is now 95% contained and remains at 1348 acres.
The fire held well today staying in its boundary despite the Red Flag conditions that existed. Crews continued securing and mopping up the current hand lines.
All air resurces have now been released and additional firefighters will be released tomorrow bringing the total number fighting the fire down to approximately 60 as the fire management team continues scaling back.
More favorable weather conditions have been forecast with less wind, higher humidity and a chance for moisture by the weekend.
Horsetooth Mountain Park will open tomorrow. Lory State Park will remain closed while firefighters are working.
We anticipate there will be only one update on the fire tomorrow.
