SAN MIGUEL COUNTY, Colo. — The Thunder Fire in Naturita Canyon, southwest of Norwood in San Miguel County, is 100% contained as of Sunday morning.

The San Miguel Sheriff's Office on Twitter said Thunder trails were back open after rainfall on Saturday helped suppress the fire.

Fire crews continued to work in the canyon though and the sheriff's office asked people to continue to avoid the area.

Pre-evacuation orders were underway on July 27 for residents on Thunder Road, including La Mesa Vista and Catspaw, the San Miguel Sheriff's Office tweeted.
