Fire officials said Wednesday that the fast-moving fire six miles southeast of Mancos is burning on more than 100 acres near where the Weber Fire burned earlier this year.
Meanwhile, crews are trying to keep another fire in southwest Colorado from spreading toward houses at Vallecito Reservoir. Fire officials say high winds pushed the fire back toward the reservoir in the afternoon, and the blaze is threatening homes in the Lakeview Estates subdivision. Fire managers say air and ground crews have not been able to attack the fire directly.
In northern Colorado, Rocky Mountain National Park officials say activity at the Fern Lake Fire has remained low.
