Firefighters are no longer battling the 7,000 acre wildfire burning near Dove Creek in southwestern Colorado. It’s now 90 percent contained after starting nine days ago due to a lightning strike.

Fire officials have decided to monitor it until it burns itself out or the area gets a significant rainfall.

The fire has cost nearly $2 million since it started.
