A small wildfire in Douglas County has been fully contained, the U.S. Forest Service announced Friday morning.
The fire started in a remote area three miles southwest of Larkspur. It reportedly was started by lightning. The fire is off Storm Peak and is burned about an acre on Forest Service land.
Because there is no road access to the site where the fire is burning, a helicopter was used Thursday to get emergency crews as close as possible. Another helicopter was used to drop water on the fire.
Thirteen firefighters reportedly worked the fire Thursday night into Friday morning. Full containment was achieved at 6:30 a.m. Friday.
Firefighters are expected to remain on site for the rest of the day.
