  1. That location doesn’t look like it’s anywhere near Rampart Range Road. It’s just a couple of miles west of Deckers, and west of Hwy 67. Rampart Range Road runs all east of Hwy 67, as far as I know.

    1. The Castle Rock Professional Firefighters map may be showing a different fire. The Pike and San Isobel National Forests info about the Forest Road Fire definitely shows it being west of Deckers.

      1. I stand corrected! There’s another fire called the 211 fire, which is the one west of Deckers. The Pike & San Isobel National Forests website had info about both of them on the same page. My error!
