Now at 5,466 acres, the Eureka Fire is showing a lot of smoke, most of it in and around Ennis.
It continues to burn in warm and dry conditions further spread by the winds.
It is now 15 percent contained. Firefighters are trying to watch for other fire starts outside the main fire and keep it west of the Gravelly Divide.
An area closure is in place in the vicinity and that includes all roads and trails within the area closure.
The closure essentially covers all access routes to and or through the Eureka Basin Fire area.
