Crews are responding to a wildfire in Park County near the Teller County line. It was originally called in around noon Sunday, about two miles north of 11 Mile Reservoir; about three miles south of Lake George. 11 Mile Canyon Recreation Area and some homes are being evacuated. Other areas have been given pre-evacuation notices; neighbors in the Wagon Tongue subdivision tell News 5 they've received the pre-evacuation notice.
Originally the fire was listed as two to four acres, but Barb Timock with the National Forest Service said around 2 p.m. that estimates put the fire between 50 and 100 acres.
40 or more firefighters are already assigned to the fire. No word yet on what started the fire.
