The Trap Fire was reported at about 9 a.m. by firefighters stationed at the Vallecito Work Center. A fire crew hiked in and reports that only two trees are burning in an area with a low potential for spread due to ground moisture. The crew is suppressing the fire. A Mesa Verde National Park helicopter reconnaissance flight this morning reports no other starts at this time on the San Juan National Forest.
