MOFFAT COUNTY, Colo. (CBS4) — The Streeter Fire burning in Moffat County has charred more than 1,600 acres. There is zero containment. The fire is burning on private and federal lands and growing closer to structures and farms.
Red Flag danger continues in western Colorado and it will get hotter this weekend.
