Crews are trying to keep a 5-acre fire burning in Rocky Mountain National Park from spreading.

The fire broke out Tuesday about a mile from Grand Lake, which is on the west side of the park. Authorities think it was started by lightning.

A park spokeswoman says no roads have been closed or evacuations ordered by the fire, though the fire has shut down a handful of trails.

Six people from Rocky Mountain National Park, Arapaho National Forest and Grand Lake Fire Protection District battled the fire Tuesday. More resources are expected to arrive Wednesday.
