A hot shot crew from Craig is on its way to Granby to help put out a 50 acre wildfire burning on a YMCA camp.

Grand County Sheriff Rod Johnson says he hopes crews can put the last of the fire out Tuesday but the work could continue Wednesday.

On Monday, the fire forced the evacuation of 300 campers and counselors from the camp and residents of 118 home were put on standby. All but those closest to the fire have now been allowed back and told they can stay.

The cause of the fire isn't known.
