Willow Lake Fire Handled, West Fork Fire 7 Percent Contained

DENVER (CBS4) – Firefighters now have a handle on a small wildfire in Jefferson County.

Fire officials think lightning sparked the blaze on Long Scraggy Peak on Monday. All pre-evacuation notices have been canceled.

Firefighters are also making some progress on the nearly month old West Fork Complex Fire. The three fires burning near Pagosa Springs have burned more than 96,000 acres.

Containment on the West Fork Complex Fire is just 7 percent but on Tuesday crews took advantage of higher humidity to build better fire lines around structures.
