Colorado wildfire grows to 1,200 acres

A wildfire burning in Colorado's White River National Forest has grown to about 1,200 acres.

The fire, eight miles northwest of New Castle in western Colorado, isn't threatening any structures or private property.

About 90 people are at the scene, but the fire is being allowed to burn in some areas to clear out vegetation and improve wildlife habitat.
