Basalt Mayor Jacque Whitsitt speaks with Alycin Bektesh about the response from the community since the Lake Christine Fire began on Tuesday, July 3.

“There is not much more anyone can do than what’s being done,” said Whitsitt.

Firefighting resources are being diverted to the area due to the threat to urban and residential centers.


Due to extenuating circumstances, the Sunday Market will not be held in Basalt on July 8, 2018.
