MEEKER I The Cabin Fire was a small fire east of Meeker on the Blanco Ranger District.
The fire was determined to be the result of a ‘holdover,’ or lightning strike that smoldered and remained undetected until warm, dry weather increased fuel receptivity. It became visible and was reported on the afternoon of Sept. 14.
The fire burned approximately 5.6 acres of dense Gambel oak on a steep hillside adjacent to private property.
Crews reported that they had fully contained the fire on Friday, Sept. 17.
