Fire officials want to remind the community that 100% containment does not mean that the fire is completely "out." Residents may still see smoke due to interior portions of the fire that are still smoldering, Boulder Fire-Rescue said.
Community members who see any abnormal fire behavior, such as open flames or significantly growing smoke plumes, to call 911.
