Col. Tim Gibson, 10th Air Base Wing commander, has closed all trails leading west off the Academy as a precaution because of the Waldo Canyon fire.

These include the Eagle's Peak, Stanley Canyon and Blodgett trails. Also, the Santa Fe trail is closed south of the Ice Lake trailhead. Currently, the Falcon trail is open.

The Farish Recreation Area was issued a mandatory evacuation order Sunday due to its proximity to the fire.

More information will be released as it becomes available.
