The Third Water Springs fire received no rainfall Thursday night but fire activity was minimal keeping the size at 131-acres with 60% containment, according to Christopher Joyner with the B.L.M.
They currently have 125 firefighters assigned to the blaze with two helicopters and six fire engines.
On Friday, their objectives are to strengthen the fire line and begin extinguishing hot spots along its edges. They hope to reach full containment this weekend so they can begin releasing crews and equipment to other fires or their home units, said Joyner.
There are currently no evacuations or pre-evacuation orders in place regarding this wildfire.
At 4:00 p.m. Friday, crews battling the Third Water Springs fire paused for a moment of silence in remembrance of fourteen of their colleagues who perished on July 6, 1994 while fighting a wildfire on Storm King Mountain near Glenwood Springs.
Joyner says the pause of silence was repeated by crews fighting forest fires across the country.
