SOUTH FORK, Colo. (AP) -- Fire managers say the West Fork Fire complex in southwest Colorado has burned a small pump house east of the Rio Grande Reservoir.

Fire officials said Friday that no other structures have been damaged.

The fire has grown to more than 170 square miles. It is 25 percent contained.

The West Fork complex is made of the Papoose, West Fork and Windy Pass fires.

The fires are burning between the cities of Creede, South Fork and Pagosa Springs in areas of beetle-killed spruce.
