SUPERIOR - Fire investigators now say the West Mullan Fire, which has burned nearly 6,300 acres near Superior, was human caused.
Incident Commander Tom Heintz and Mineral County Sheriff Ernie Ornelas are also working cooperatively to develop a plan for the evacuees to return to their properties.
They say if all goes as planned, the Incident Management Team will begin to develop a timeline to consider what resources will be released to other fires across the nation.
Meanwhile, helicopters will continue to drop water and retardant to help ground crews in their mop up operations.
