DENVER, Colo. (AP) - Rocky Mountain Area Coordinators Center spokesman Steve Segin says the fire started near Sheep Mountain in Grand County at about 12:30 P.M. Sunday and originally reported to be 10 acres, but he says it widened to 400 acres by 3:00PM.
Sheriff's Department spokesman Jodie Kern says she doesn't know how many people live near the fire. She says the U.S. Forest Service and every fire department in the county have sent people to work on the blaze.
Segin says he doesn't expect the fire to last long, mostly because cooler weather is expected Monday.
