RED FEATHER LAKES, Colo. (AP) – Evacuation notices have been lifted for residents in northern Colorado following a wildfire that destroyed a summer cabin.

More than 360 emergency notifications were sent around 3 a.m. Monday for Red Feather Village, telling residents to evacuate immediately. The order was lifted about an hour and an half later after firefighters gained control of the fire.

A second structure was also burned but it’s not clear whether it was a home.

Larimer County Sheriff’s Office spokesman John Schulz said the cause of the fire is being investigated.

Firefighters are still battling a wildfire that’s been burning in nearby Rocky Mountain National Park for nearly two months. Strong winds have spread the Fern Lake Fire to more than 3,500 acres. It’s 20 percent contained. It destroyed a cabin in the park.
