STEAMBOAT SPRINGS, Colo. (CBS4)- A wildfire burning near Steamboat Springs was 100 percent contained Wednesday afternoon.

The wildfire started Tuesday when ranch workers lost control of a burn that was meant to clear out ditches. More than 300 acres burned.

No structures were threatened.

Next week, Routt County Commissioners will consider imposing a burn ban because of recent warm, dry weather.
