NORWOOD, Colo., May 24 (UPI) -- Overnight rain and snow helped suppress the 3,200-acre San Miguel Canyon wildfire, officials said Monday.
Bureau of Land Management spokeswoman Erin Curtis said firefighters were being aided by the moisture, coupled with lower temperatures and somewhat lighter winds, The Denver Post reported. Winds gusting to 45-60 mph had fanned the flames through the weekend but had weakened to the 15-35 mph range by Monday.
Curtis said the blaze had moved within a few miles of Norwood but no homes or other buildings were endangered. No evacuations had been ordered.
About 180 firefighters were working the wildfire.
