Winds Kick Up Month-Old Fern Lake Fire

ROCKY MOUNTAIN NATIONAL PARK, Colo. (CBS4) – Gusty winds and unseasonably warm weather are stirring up a month-old wildfire in Rocky Mountain National Park.

The Fern Lake Fire put out off a lot of smoke on Thanksgiving Day after creeping towards Spruce Creek. It’s now over 1,200 acres.

The fire started on Oct. 9, but firefighters could never get a good attack going because the terrain is so rugged.

Park rangers say the only thing that will put out the fire is a big snowstorm.
