The Miner’s Candle fire burning near Idaho Springs is 100% contained, fire officials said Tuesday.
The wildfire started Sunday as a structure fire and it forced residents of about two dozen homes to evacuate. The fire, which destroyed two homes, a cabin and a small number of outbuildings, burned about 15 acres, according to the Clear Creek County Sheriff’s Office.
Strong winds on Sunday and extremely dry weather fueled the fire. There were no reports of injuries or fatalities.
The #MinersCandleFire is now at 100% containment.
This is the last update, unless something changes significantly.
