Colorado gets early start
ELLICOTT, Colo. (AP) - A wildfire forced the evacuation of 10
residents before being contained by firefighters, authorities said.
One outbuilding was damaged and two vehicles may have been
damaged, El Paso County sheriff's Lt. Clif Northam said.
Original estimates placed the fire's size at 300 acres, but
better GPS mapping determined that only 68 acres were scored,
The fire, reported at 2:30 p.m., was contained about 5 p.m.
Investigators did not immediately have a cause.Proudly serving as the IACOJ Minister of Information & Propoganda!
