Residents of a total of 2,156 homes have been ordered to evacuate as of Sunday afternoon, La Plata County spokeswoman Megan Graham told The Durango Herald. The fire's southwest flank has now moved into North Buck Creek and the Buck Creek drainage.

- The 416 Fire in southwestern Colorado grew to 22,131 acres, officials said Monday morning.

Friday's priority was protecting structures around Hermosa, Brian Eaby, a spokesman for a federal team in charge of the firefighting effort, told The Durango Herald.

Sunday morning started off with more evacuations. The Fire Weather Potential Index is listed as "high". On Friday night, Fremont County Sheriff's Office said the fire had grown to more than 30 acres and was headed northeast. No structures had been lost as of Friday morning.

The large wildfire has prompted the evacuation of an additional 859 homes in the Purgatory/Durango Mountain Resort, Lake Purgatory, Silver Pick Lodge, Cascade Village, and Mill Creek areas. The closure is planned in order to protect natural resources and public safety, officials said.

Along with the fixed wing aircraft, four Type I helicopters, two Type II helicopters and two Type III helicopters will fight the fire from the air.

Aerial operations are creating a larger burnout area on the north side of the fire to serve as a barrier should the fire spread that direction from the southwest. Firefighters on the ground and in the air were still battling the blaze.

More evacuations ordered for the "416 Fire" north of Durango

The so-called 416 Fire in southwest Colorado had burned almost 17,000 acres by Sunday morning, an area larger than Manhattan.

The fire started June 1 in the San Juan National Forest but the cause hasn't been determined.

Weather conditions will continue to be challenging.

Elsewhere, the National Weather Service issued a dense smoke weather warning for Highway 550 corridor from Molas Pass through Durango and down to the New Mexico state line, as well as the Highway 160 corridor between Hesperus and Bayfield, extending east past Pagosa Springs.

A stubborn Colorado wildfire grew by around a fifth on Saturday and was expected to continue to grow Sunday, consuming sparsely populated land as low humidity and high winds left firefighters bracing for it to spread, officials said.

Highway 550 southbound will remain open Friday until 6 p.m.to through traffic only with law enforcement pilot vehicles escorting convoys through the fire area. And the Natty fire, which covered 70 acres near Cañon City in south-central Colorado, had been 70 percent contained.
