4 Junction firefighters head to blaze in Boulder


Four Grand Junction wildland firefighters headed to the Front Range with a brush engine Sunday night to help fight the Sunshine Fire in Boulder’s Sunshine Canyon, according to Grand Junction Fire Department spokeswoman Ellis Thompson-Ellis.

The fire, which by Sunday afternoon had forced evacuations of 426 homes with another 836 households on evacuation standby, has grown to 106 acres with no containment when Grand Junction’s crew was deployed, Thompson-Ellis said.

The crew could be deployed for up to two weeks, she said.

In the Grand Valley, two other departments battled fires in dry and windy conditions Sunday.

Clifton Fire Department responded to a fire near Long Family Memorial Park, according to police radio reports. Thompson-Ellis said Grand Junction firefighters assisted the Lower Valley Fire Protection District with another blaze near 22 and Jay roads, but had no further information.

Neither department could be reached Sunday.
