FORT COLLINS - The U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service has postponed a prescribed burn at the Rocky Mountain Arsenal National Wildlife Refuge because of dangerous fire conditions on the Front Range.
The burn was scheduled for Tuesday, but officials say the weather is not cooperating.
Meanwhile, firefighters are continuing to battle a wildfire in the foothills west of Fort Collins that is being hammered by gusty winds.
Firefighters said the 1,348-acre Galena Fire was 85 percent contained Monday evening.
The fire has damaged numerous pedestrian bridges in Lory State Park.
Some personnel were released Monday night - bringing the total number of firefighters on the fire down to 80.
Fire officials plan to secure fire lines and continue to mop-up on Tuesday.
That park and Horsetooth Mountain Park have been closed due to the fire.
Two additional minor injuries were reported Tuesday morning bringing to four the number of firefighters injured during operations. All injuries were minor and the firefighters were treated and released at a local hospital. The steep terrain in the area is the primary cause for the injuries as most of them are knee and ankle injuries.
