Alkali Fire could be fully contained by Sunday

CRAIG, Colo. (AP) - Firefighters hope to have a 32-square-mile wildfire in northwestern Colorado fully contained by Sunday.

The Alkali Fire, burning on mostly private land near Maybell, was listed as 75 percent contained Saturday.

The fire killed three cattle, destroyed a cabin, barn and propane tank. The cause is under investigation.

Firefighters are also moving closer to fully containing a 276-acre wildfire, the Carl's Hole Fire, about 30 miles west of Meeker. It was started Tuesday night by lightning.
