Small wildfire in the foothills southwest of Denver

A small wildfire broke out in the foothills southwest of Denver on Sunday, according to the West Metro Fire Rescue.

A fire at a western ranch of about six acres burned in the foothills west of the Ken Caryl Valley Sunday afternoon, the fire agency said. The nearest unit, dubbed West Ranch, is about half a mile from the fire, said Dan Khatlestad, battalion commander of the Intercanyon Fire Protection District.

The unit was not in danger of a fire on Sunday night, and there was no evacuation or pre-evacuation, Khatlestad said. He added that any such orders would go through the Jefferson County Sheriff’s Office.

The firefighters had to walk the steep and rocky terrain to reach the fire, Khatlestad said. The flames were caused by the wind and slowly spread through the bushes.

“There are isolated pockets of pine trees in the area that sometimes break out, but within the perimeter of the fire,” he said.

Approximately 30 firefighters responded from the Inter Canyon Fire Protection Area, Elk Creek Fire Protection Area, Indian Hills Fire and Rescue Division and the Western Metro. The teams will remain in place overnight as they work to contain the fire, Khatlestad said.
