According to the Summit Daily, as of 6 p.m. yesterday the fire was within a mile of structures at Wolf Mountain Ranch.

According to authorities, the mixture of the wind, terrain, and arid conditions have fueled the fire. Firefighters from several communities including Steamboat Springs, Oak Creek, and Hayden were on the scene by Monday afternoon.
