Grass fire burns 7 acres in east Denver

Smoke from the fire was visible Sunday afternoon. No structures were damaged.

DENVER — Smoke was visible from a grass fire that burned about seven acres in the Lowry neighborhood of east Denver Sunday afternoon, according to the Denver Fire Department (DFD).

The fire started around 2 p.m. in the area of First Avenue and Dayton Street, near CommonGround Golf Course and Lowry Dog Park.  

DFD said the fire was driven by high winds. 

About 25 firefighters responded and were able to contain the fire before it affected any structures. 

There's no word on what caused the fire. 

This fire on the east side of Denver was one of several burning in windy conditions across Colorado Sunday afternoon. 

A fire called the West Ranch Fire has burned less than 10 acres in the foothills west of Ken Caryl Valley in Jefferson County. That fire is not threatening any structures.
