Crews fight 52-acre wildfire near Masonville

LOVELAND ” Crews from several agencies are battling a 52-acre wildfire in the Bobcat Ridge Natural Area near Masonville.

The fire was reported at 11:40 a.m. Tuesday west of Colorado highways 27 and 32C.

Loveland fire spokesman Scott Pringle says the blaze is burning grass and brush in a “very remote area with limited access.” Wind gusts in the area reached 60 mph Tuesday afternoon.

Officials weren’t sure what started the fire, but much of the Front Range was under a “red flag” warning Tuesday because of dry, warm conditions and stiff wind.

Pringle says no evacuations have been ordered, and no structures are threatened.
