GOLDEN, Colo. (AP) - Crews are monitoring a wildfire in the foothills of Jefferson County that prompted evacuations for a few hours.
Sheriff's officials say evacuation orders went out Monday evening to 252 phones for residents in Blue Mountain Estates, northwest of Ralston Reservoir. The evacuations were lifted at 8 p.m.
It's not clear how many people were told to leave, since some homes receive notices to more than one phone number.
A helicopter helped firefighters on the ground.
There was no immediate word on what caused the fire.
