The Hayden Pass Fire has grown to more than 12,000 acres and a Type 2 firefighting team was assigned to take over management of the fire this morning at 6 a.m. That's in addition to homes on County Road 6 and County Road 40.

Federal fire managers on Monday reported active fires in at least nine states.

The fire started on Friday near Hayden Creek after a lightning strike.

The Fremont County Sheriff's Office released information on their Facebook page saying that The Rainbow Trail Lutheran Camp in Custer County had also been evacuated. This report shows 171 firefighters are battling the Hayden Pass Fire, with 11 engines and three helicopters assigned.

The fire department in Howard is an evacuation shelter, and Chaffee County Fairgrounds in Salida is taking in animals. The warmer temperatures aloft caused increased wind and therefore increased fire activity. The actual fire still primarily affects the Sangre de Cristo Wilderness, while the curtain of smoke has spread north and east of the actual fire zone.

Officials said they did not have an estimate of when the fire would be fully contained.

Crews were working fire lines around the blaze that has burned about 19 square miles. More agencies and additional resources are en route. CR 6 is closed west of USA 50.

Current actions: Provide for life safety and assess suppression opportunities.

It's not clear how long Suggs and Kuykendall had been camping in the area along with a 20-year-old woman who investigators say didn't help build the fire. "It's roughly 1,000 acres in size and it's burning on land that is part of Fort Carson".
