LAPORTE, Colo. (AP) – Firefighters have contained an 80-acre wildfire north of LaPorte.

The Fort Collins Coloradoan reports the fire scorched a storage shed on Saturday but didn’t threaten any homes.

A property owner says he was burning brush when the wind came up and spread the fire.

Poudre Fire Authority Capt. Matt Housley says warm, dry weather worsened the fire’s spread.
