Progress made against Colorado fire west of Denver

Colorado fire officials say they have made progress against a blaze burning in the foothills west of Denver.

Jefferson County officials say the fire burning near Bald Mountain was 50% contained by Saturday afternoon.

Authorities re-opened U.S. Highway 6 west of Golden after earlier closing it to traffic.

Officials are investigating the cause of the fire, which produced billowing smoke that could be seen from downtown Denver.
