BASALT, Colo. (CBS4) – The Lake Christine Fire burning near has grown to more than 11,700 acres as of Tuesday.
It grew another 300 acres overnight. It is 39 percent contained.
Crews are now focusing on reinforcing containment lines on the northwest side of the fire while connecting a line from the north to the northeast. They expect afternoon thunderstorms to produce strong wind gusts which could fuel fire activity.
