White River National Forest Investigators seek information on Peak 2 Fire start 7/11/17

MEDIA CONTACT: Kevin Warner, acting District Ranger, 970-948-3911

Investigators seek information on Peak 2 Fire start

DILLON, Colo. – July 11, 2017 - Fire investigators from the U.S. Forest Service and other cooperators are asking for the public’s help in locating two individuals seen near the origin of the Peak 2 Fire.

Investigators are seeking the identity of two individuals seen hiking on the Colorado Trail above the Miners Creek Road junction at approximately 11 a.m. on July 5.

“After fire conditions moderated and it was safe to enter the area, fire investigators examined the point of origin and determined the Peak 2 Fire was human-caused,” said acting Dillon District Ranger Kevin Warner. 

Anyone who thinks they may have information that would help identify these individuals is urged to call 970-262-3486 and leave a message with date and time you are calling, name, return phone number, and a brief summary of the information you can provide.  

“This information is important in helping us determine the cause of the Peak 2 Fire,” Warner said. “We appreciate any information the public can provide about these individuals.”

The Peak 2 Fire started July 5 about 2 miles north of Breckenridge, Colo. It burned 84 acres and led to evacuations and pre-evacuations in the Breckenridge and Frisco areas. More than 400 firefighters and the Rocky Mountain Type 1 Incident Management Team fought the fire.
