Fire crews have gotten a handle on the Colorado Peak Fire and firefighters are putting out hot spots and performing mopup duty.
The latest update says the size of the fire is 245 acres. The size of the fire was downgraded because of better mapping, the Forest Service announced.
Incident Commander Chris Stevens told the Los Alamos Monitor Thursday afternoon that the fire is 80 percent contained.
Stevens said that crews worked Wednesday night putting in a hand line around the perimeter of the fire.
"It's called a shaky containment," Stevens said.
