HAYDEN, Colo. (CBS4) – A wildfire that broke out near Hayden on Saturday has now burned more than 1,500 acres, but officials say it’s under control.

The Steamboat Today reported that Routt County Sheriff Garrett Wiggins said the Cog Fire burned about 800 acres on Saturday, but it had grown.

“I think we have a pretty good grip on it,” Wiggins told the newspaper.

According to Wiggins, about eight to 10 homes were threatened by the fire and some residents, along with some livestock had to be evacuated.
