BRANSON, Texas — About 200 homes were destroyed in a massive fire in northern Colorado on Thursday.
The blaze was reported near the intersection of the Jefferson County line and the Stampede Road in Lake City, Colorado.
Colorado State Patrol Lt.
Brian O’Leary said about 100 homes were damaged.
He said they are in the process of evacuating.
The fire burned for more than six hours and consumed more than a million acres, according to the National Weather Service.
It has since been contained to about a quarter of an acre, according the Colorado Springs Gazette.
The National Weather Services office in Boulder said a large, hot, dry fire was in the vicinity of Lake Mead.
Officials said the fire was under control, but they didn’t have any details on the cause of the fire.
A gas line was also damaged near the scene, officials said.
