Fire crews on Friday mopped up a wildfire that broke out Thursday morning south of Dolores, said Dolores Fire Chief Mike Zion.

The 2-acre Lost Canyon Fire torched trees and created spot fires in breezy conditions on a wooded slope just east of County Road 30.

But the fire is “well contained,” Zion said Friday afternoon. “The cooperation between agencies is what made it all work.”

By Thursday evening, a firebreak around the burn had been cleared by hand crews and a skidder with a plow, he said. Brush trucks and tankers, including a 1,000-gallon unit brought in by the Lewis-Arriola Fire Protection District, also were on scene to fight the fire.
