UPDATE AUG 6: Aspen Fire winds down but will still produce some smoke for at least next few days

August 6, 2013

The Aspen Fire was at about 20,797 acres as of Tuesday morning, Aug. 6.

The fire was at 75 percent contained, meaning the fire has a fire line around about 65 percent of it, according to fire officials.

Fire crews have been using the cooler night air to create a stronger fire line by lighting of several hundred feet of brush and other fuels close to the fire line in order to create a thicker line of unburnable fuel to slow the fire's advance, forest service officials said. That process works, but it also puts more smoke into the air.

The search for a man last seen in Mammoth Lakes and missing since July 16 has turned up no new information, after an investigation by the Mammoth Lakes Police Department and a preliminary search this week by the Mono County Search and Rescue team members (as well as other searchers), according to law enforcement officials.

Greene, 39, an experienced climber and hiker and a teacher from Pennsylvania, was last heard from after he dropped off his car at a repair shop in Mammoth on July 16 and made a few phone calls from his cell phone.
