WOODLAND PARK – The Pike & San Isabel National Forest tweeted that firefighters are at the scene of a small fire burning near Woodland Park Monday.

Firefighters said no structures are threatened from the fire, which is currently estimated at 7 acres and is burning about 2 miles northeast of Woodland Park off of Rampart Range Road. It is currently 10% contained. Fire crews determined it was caused by a campfire in the area.

Authorities report that they’re making progress on building a fire line and they’ve made progress on increasing containment.

Rampart Range Road is back open, but drivers should be mindful that fire trucks and crews will be active in the area.

Crews from the US Forest Service and Northeast Teller County Fire Protection District are at the scene.
