SUPERIOR - There has been little change at the Sunrise fire that's burning 11 miles southeast of Superior. The blaze remains at just under 25,000 acres and is still 56% contained.

A community fire information meeting will be held at the Lozeau Lodge Pavilion on Saturday, August 26 at 7 p.m.

Stage III evacuations are in effect for Upper Trout Creek, Quartz Creek, Cougar Meadows, Cougar Gulch and Cougar Creek. No other evacuation orders are in effect.

Fire managers report the most active parts of the fire continue to be the Forty Six Creek drainage and upper Sunrise Creek. The fire burning in these areas are currently creeping and smoldering, but could possibly increase in activity over the next few days with drier weather and gusty winds.
