The BLM says a lightning-sparked brushfire 18 miles west of Wells, north of I-80 is still 25,100-acres large. It's now 95% contained. 

The Tabor Flats Fire started on July 8th around 5 p.m.

No structures are currently being threatened. 

The BLM says the public is encouraged to follow the fire tips below for a safe recreating experience:
•         Do not leave campfires unattended. 
•         Clear vegetation and dry debris down to bare soil within 10 feet around your campfire.
•         Be sure to completely put out campfires, leaving the site cold to the touch. 
•         Make sure lighting and heating devices are cool before refueling.
•         Ensure cigarettes, cigars and tobacco pipes are fully extinguished when not in use. 
•         Use caution when operating vehicles in close proximity to vegetation. Spark arresting devices must be properly installed and maintained on all internal combustion engines.
•         Do not target shoot in areas of dry fuels or use.
•         Call 911 to report any wildfires.
