LARIMER COUNTY - A fire burning 371 acres in Larimer County between Loveland and Fort Collins is now nearly completely contained after about 24 hours of firefighting.
The fire, dubbed the Spring Glade Fire, sparked on Saturday afternoon and forced mandatory evacuations for people in the Stout area and a voluntary evacuation for those in Rim Rock, Colorado Emergency Management says.
Those evacuation orders have since been lifted.
By Sunday afternoon, the fire was 95 percent contained. Crews said the blaze did not grow in size overnight.
No road closures are currently in place, but motorists are asked to avoid Taft Hill Road south of Harmony Road due to the firefighting operations.
The Coyote Ridge Natural Area is closed to all activities due to this fire.

Its cause is unclear at this time.
