GUNNISON COUNTY, Colo. (CBS4) – Firefighters in Gunnison County are working to contain a third wildfire in the past two days.

On Saturday crews were called out to a fire east of Crested Butte. They say a controlled burn got out of control because of the gusty winds and dry conditions.

The Brush Creek fire burned 50 acres. It was 70 percent contained on Sunday morning.
