Lightner Fire:  The fire is burning on BLM and State lands 3.5 miles west of Durango. Estimated at 90 acres and 80% containment. Only a few interior smokes were observed today. One 20-person crew and one water tender are mopping up 1 chain (66 feet) in from perimeter. It will probably be several more days before full containment is reached.  Some light smoke coming from interior. Residents may use County Road 208 but are asked to drive slowly and watch for fire traffic. Updates and photos are posted at
