EVERGREEN, Colo. (AP) -- Jefferson County sheriff's officials are evacuating some homes in Evergreen due to a small fire.

Residents within a mile of Bluebell Circle were being told to leave their homes immediately Monday afternoon. Sheriff's officials say the fire is less than two acres, but the wind is carrying sparks from the fire in a wooded area southwest of Bluebell Circle.

Evergreen is in the foothills about 30 miles west of Denver.
