LA VETA, Colo. (AP) – A wildfire in rural Huerfano County is nearly contained, with all evacuations lifted.
The fire is burning on 60 acres and was 75 percent contained by Wednesday evening.
No structures have been lost in the wildfire, which broke out about four miles west of La Veta in Huerfano County.
The county’s Office of Emergency Management says lower temperatures overnight and slower winds helped firefighters tame the blaze, but winds picked up considerably Wednesday evening. The Klikus Fire cause remains under investigation.
