The Oil Springs Fire, south of Rangely, burned more than 12,000 acres, beginning in June, and is now 99% contained. Drought conditions and heavy winds fueled extreme fire behavior for over 2 weeks that threatened a natural gas processing facility. Lucas Turner, of the Rio Blanco Herald in Meeker, has this report.
