Smoke reports confirmed southwest of Redskin Mountain. Forest Service property. It is confirmed Fire. Trying to get a better location to send folks out. Looking to get air on it if possible. Crews are heading out on FS Road 550 now. Now 1 mile east of Wellington Lake Road. North Fork heading out. Platte Canyon sending out Tac engine and another engine. Forest Service enroute with Division 11. They have diverted Air to size up the situation and get a better location.

This sounds like about 8 miles SE of Bailey for those not familiar with Redskin Mountain
Per units now approaching fire scene, fire is about 1/2 to 3/4 acre, being called Redskin Fire
