DURANGO, Colo. (CBS4) – As the battle continues on the Lightner Fire, the city of Durango has decided to postpone their 4th of July fireworks celebration.

Durango Fire & Rescue says that “an increase in the amount of dry fuels, and consistent weather conditions favorable to wildfires,” played a part in the decision.

All other festivities surrounding the Independence Day holiday are still scheduled to go on as planned.

The Lightner Fire has burned approximately 362 acres since Wednesday evening. One house has been lost.
