Galena Wildfire is now 75% contained

Officials in Larimer County say two firefighters are recovering from minor injuries suffered while trying to contain a wildfire.

The Galena Wildfire has scorched more than 1,300 acres in the foothills west of Fort Collins.

The fire was 75 percent contained on Monday and mop-up efforts are already under way.

Authorities say they believe the fire was human-caused, but they are not disclosing how it began.

The sheriff's office says wet weather prevented the fire from growing much Sunday.

At its height, the fire forced hundreds of residents from their homes Friday. Evacuees were allowed to return Saturday night, but were told to be prepared to leave again.
