Crews have a small fire burning in Huerfano County fully contained Tuesday afternoon.

Flames were first spotted Monday on Greenhorn Mountain, north of Highway 69, 16 miles northwest of Walsenburg. Lightning in the area kept crews from being able to reach the fire early on, but they were eventually able to reach it by the evening.

BLM fire personnel will remain on the incident for the remainder of the day to secure fire lines and complete mop-up operations.

Authorities say the fire is burning in "very" rough terrain and is not threatening any structures. Lightning is believed to be the cause.
