Two more wildfires are burning in Colorado.
The Brush Creek Fire was reported just after 10:00 a.m. Wednesday. It's burning near Douglas Pass, about 17-miles east of the Utah border on B.L.M. public land.
According to Lynn Barclay with the Northwest Colorado Fire Management Unit, the fire is estimated at 100-acres and it's situated on Pike Ridge, where it's burning in heavy timber with limited access to the area.
Firefighters are working to hold the fire on the ridge to keep it from running over the top into the next drainage.
There are seven structures north of the blaze and two structures within a mile west of the fire, Barclay said. Engines are providing structure protection with support from two single-engine air tankers dropping retardant and a helicopter dropping water.
Smoke jumpers were deployed immediately to begin fighting the fire until wild land engines could reach the area.
Currently they have seven engines, eight smoke jumpers, one helicopter and one hand crew on scene. They've ordered two heavy air tankers, four hand crews, two helicopters and two heli-tankers.
A second wildfire was reported on Wednesday at 1:19 p.m. in Routt County on private land north of Hayden and three-miles east of Elkhead Reservoir.
The Williams Fire is also estimated to be 100-acres. This one is burning in a hay field, surrounded by grass and brush, according to Barclay.
They have three engines responding to this fire along with two water tenders. The north flank of the fire is contained and firefighters are working on the south flank.
Barclay said there are structures located to the west and south of the Williams Fire but there are no control difficulties so firefighters expect to have the blaze 100% contained by Wednesday evening.
