This aerial shot shows the proximity of the Burro Fire in the Dolores Valley and the 416 Fire in the Animas Valley to the east.
The majority of growth in the Burro Fire occurred in the northwest portion of the heat perimeter, according to an infrared mapping flight about 10:35 p.m. Thursday.
Dry fuels and hot weather are causing the Burro Fire to flare up. Here, flames approach the containment line near the top of Bear Creek Canyon.
