The Fort Lyon Correctional Facility is now on emergency power after fire severed power lines to the facility.
At this time there are no plans to evacuate prisoners. The fire has come to within a quarter of a mile of the facility this week, but has not destroyed any buildings on prison grounds.
The facility is operating on emergency generators. More generators are being brought in to make sure the prison's water system does not run low.
