Molina fire 100 percent contained

Fire crews Tuesday night and this morning fully contained a wildfire that initially threatened residents of about 500 homes, according to the Mesa County Sheriff’s Department.

The fire, labeled the Bull Basin Fire because of its location, started on private land about a mile southwest of Molina.

Residents received orders Tuesday night to be ready to evacuate but those orders were lifted late Tuesday.

About 120 firefighters including two Type 2 Initial Attack Crews and three Bureau of Land Management firefighter crews attacked the blaze.
