The fire forced the closure of Bear Lake Road to inbound traffic due to emergency vehicles. What caused the fire is being investigated. Crews were trying to keep the blaze contained to the stables and prevent it from spreading into the forest.

Glacier Creek Stable is the only riding facility inside Rocky Mountain National Park.
