Three wildfires were burning in remote areas of Dinosaur National Monument, which remained open to visitors as of Friday evening.
The largest is the Hog Fire, which by Friday night had spread to 40 acres on the Yampa Plateau. Three engines, two hand crews, two heavy tankers and an air tanker began tackling the flames at 5 p.m., though the fire was zero percent contained Friday evening, said National Park Service spokesman Dan Johnson.
The 15-acre Island Park Fire, located in the monument's Rainbow Park area, was also uncontained as of Friday night. Fire crews from the U.S. Bureau of Land Management were fighting the fire with the help of smoke jumpers and hand crews, Johnson said.
