The Kruger Rock fire, burning southeast of Estes Park, is 85% contained and the fire has scorched 147 acres.

People in the area should expect to see smoke and flames in the fire’s interior on Saturday, fire officials said.

Snow showers fell on the fire area early Saturday morning, according to a U.S. Forest Service news release, and there’s a chance for more snow showers throughout the day and into the night.

Firefighting ground crews will continue to work on fire containment lines with air support available Saturday depending on weather conditions, according to the release. Daytime weather conditions are expected to be warm, mostly dry and breezy to windy through the weekend.

All remaining evacuation notices for the fire area were lifted late in the day Friday by the Larimer County Sheriff’s Office.

The fire, which started early Tuesday near Little Valley and Fish Creek roads, was sparked when strong winds toppled a tree, which downed a powerline. No structure damage has been reported.
