When we arrived in Durango, the 416 fire had been burning for 12 days. It's suspected a spark from a steam engine on the Narrow Gauge Durango & Silverton train started it. It's currently only 18% contained at over 34,000 acres, and with about 500 firefighters managing it. About a week ago there were over 1000 firefighters. The cost of fighting the fire, as of Saturday the 23rd, was $21.7 million. Colorado, like every other Western State, had precious little snow over the winter, and scarcely any spring rains. They are looking to the July "monsoon rains" to help get this fire under control. It won't be out any time soon, that's for sure.
