However, firefighters were counting on some relief from a promising shift in weather patterns forecast for Friday, some of it associated with Hurricane Bud. "With the storms comes the lightning and those gusty winds".

A 32-mile stretch of U.S. Highway 550, which has served as a buffer for homes on the eastern edge of the fire, was closed, officials said. After heavy burnout activity on Monday and Tuesday that produced visible plumes, back-burns weren't done on Wednesday.

"Given the fire behavior that we've been seeing and the amount of fire on the landscape and the amount of structures in the area, that's a really good thing", Knight said. "We want to make sure that what we do aligns well with all of the insets and parameters that we're receiving".

Crews continue an aggressive air and ground response on Wednesday to contain the fire and protect homes in the area.

The operational plan will be to continue to focus on public and firefighter safety, evacuations, assessments, and structure protection.

As the eastern portion of the fire has calmed, the fire has become more active in other areas. Pre-evacuation orders are in place for the community of Foxborough. The 416 Fire north of Durango in southwest Colorado has burned about 36 square miles (about 93 square kilometers) and is partially contained.
