Albany County officials issued evacuation orders for the communities of Mountain Home, Wold Tract, WyoColo, Foxpark, Gramm, Beehive, Miller Lake, and the areas along Highway 10 from Woods Landing south to the Colorado state line.

The fire is zero percent contained.

Across the state, Colorado's largest fire has burned about 43 square miles (111 square kilometers) over almost two weeks.

The San Juan National Forest closed indefinitely on Tuesday for the first time since it became a national forest more than 100 years ago. Those living below 20 Grand Road were placed on a pre-evacuation notice.

"(The Burro Fire) is a very terrain-driven fire, and is burning wherever it wants to go in mixed conifer and steep conditions", he said.

But dry conditions have persisted, resulting in fires that now threaten the area.

"It's going to get worse before it gets better", incident commander Todd Pechota told the Durango Herald.

All 1.8 million acres of the San Juan National Forest in southwestern Colorado were due to be closed to visitors by Tuesday, the U.S. Department of Agriculture said, citing the fire danger.

Murphy, have been quick to point out that no long-term verification process was included in the agreement. The meeting is seen by North Korea as a way of bringing legitimacy to a nation long regarded as a pariah.

The closure will remain until sufficient precipitation eases the fire danger.

The Forest Service also advised all dispersed campers near the fire area relocate to other areas of the forest.

Wildfire anxiety in Colorado is peaking after a fast-growing blaze west of Silverthorne ignited Tuesday morning and made a hasty run at more than 1,300 houses and condominiums in a pair of neighborhoods, prompting a quick round of mandatory evacuations as authorities rushed to get people out of its path.

The state's largest fire forced the evacuation of more than 1,300 homes Tuesday after spreading dangerously close to the resort town of Silverthorne and two densely populated housing developments, just 60 miles west of Denver.

"Things are looking really good around the two subdivisions at this time", Jim Genung, with the Upper Colorado River Interagency Fire Management Unit, said at a news conference. Officials said the fire was burning in heavy fuels. By Thursday, the fire was 95 percent contained.

No buildings have been destroyed so far, but flames had crept to within a few hundred yards of homes, with multiple aircraft dropping water and flame retardant, according to Inciweb, an interagency fire report.

A public information officer spoke with KDVR's Emily Allen and would not specify the exact cause of the blaze but instead listed off a number of possibilities, including the idea that a piece of glass thrown on the ground may have magnified and started the fire.
