The Fern Lake Fire which has been burning in Rocky Mountain National Park in Colorado since November 17, has grown to 1,030 acres but was slowed by a couple inches of snow Wednesday. While some areas on the east flank were still active on Thursday, another one to two inches of snow is predicted for Thursday night, to be followed by a dry, windy period this weekend.
