The fire was initially called Rampart 67 Fire but the name was changed to the Indian Creek Fire after the US Forest Service took command of the fire.

The fire has burned 5-7 acres and was 60 to 70 percent contained as of 1:30 p.m.

Officials say a tree that was blown over hit a power line and caused the fire.
