Nucla, Colo. (AP) - Crews have extended their lines around a wildfire burning in Southwest Colorado.
The fire is on 935 acres, or about 1.5 square miles, 10 miles north of Nucla.
Fire Spokeswoman Lee Ann Loupe said Wednesday lines have been built around the full perimeter of the fire, but it won't be declared fully contained until managers are confident the lines will hold.
Two bulldozers and a hotshot crew have been released because of the progress firefighters have made.
Despite the wildfires burning in California and Utah, Loupe says managers are still well-equipped to fight the fire.
