Cibola National Forest and National Grasslands officials said Monday that the shutdown - starting as early as Friday - will remain in effect pending a significant amount of moisture and subsequent decreases in fire danger. The unsafe fires have prompted some evacuations from southern California to Colorado.

The National Weather Service posted red-flag warnings for extreme fire danger for large portions of the Four Corners region of Utah, Colorado, New Mexico and Arizona.

Albany County Officials have issued evacuation orders for the communities of Mountain Home, Wyocolo, Wold Tract, Foxpark, Gramm, Beehive, Miller Lake, and the areas along Highway 10 from Woods Landing south to the Colorado state line.

By Thursday, the blaze burning 67 miles west of Denver had consumed 91 acres and was still growing, thanks to gusty winds, according to Inciweb.

Fire risks are at "historic levels", San Juan National Forest Fire Staff Officer Richard Bustamante said, adding, "Under current conditions, one abandoned campfire or spark could cause a catastrophic wildfire, and we are not willing to take that chance with the natural and cultural resources under our protection and care, or with human life and property".

"We recognize that this is hard for the local businesses and the local economy and just ask that people just be understanding and patient", Hooley said.

"The two fires burning on the forest isn't necessarily what propagated the closure, but it is a result of the same conditions that exist".

In Colorado, massive wildfires displaced thousands of people and destroyed tens of thousands of acres, while in Beverly Hills some residents were forced to flee their homes Tuesday as flames erupted and threatened million dollar mansions.
