Fires continued to ravage forests and prairies, and crews fighting three blazes hoped the elements would be on their side. A fire near Craig scorched about 9,000 acres of prairie and rolling hills. Another fire raged in the San Isabel National Forest after burning more than 300 acres of timber. Firefighters hoped higher humidity, weaker winds and lower temperatures would help them strengthen a fire line. In Larimer County, drizzle aided efforts to slow a wildfire that had burned 250 acres in the Roosevelt-Arapaho National Forest.
