GOLDEN, Colo. (AP) – Firefighters have fully contained a small wildfire burning in the foothills of Jefferson County.

The Glencoe Valley Fire burned about six acres and was fully contained Tuesday.

Evacuation orders went out Monday evening for residents in a subdivision northwest of Ralston Reservoir but were lifted at 8 p.m. Monday.

A helicopter helped attack the fire, and it didn’t grow overnight.
