Due to a reduced fire risk, officials are decommissioning the Mobilization Center set up at Grand Mesa Middle School in Clifton. The center has been serving firefighters from across the country for the past few days.
The Mobilization Center began operating at the end of June. Officials say 715 personnel moved through it, including 20 fire crews and 22 engines.
Firefighters and engines will be moved to other fires and other staging areas within the Rocky Mountain Region.
Officials with the Mobilization Center say they were overwhelmed by support from the community.
Andrea Holland, public information officer at the center, said, "They left the mobilization center with a really good feeling about Clifton and Grand Junction, and I can't say enough about the support we've received from the community. We've just been rained upon with really good intentions and everything we could've needed."

While the fire risk in the area has been reduced to moderate to low, officials ask that the public still be very cautious.
