HUERFANO COUNTY, Colo. (KRDO) -- Crews continue to work on a wildfire that ignited Friday evening in Huerfano County after a lightning strike. As of Sunday morning, the Bureau of Land Management says the Wilson Crossing Fire has grown to about 133 acres and is at 40% containment.

The fire is about 17 miles southeast of Colorado City. No structures are immediately threatened, but there is a power line that runs north and east of the fire's location. Ground and air crews will continue working Sunday to protect the power line and establish more containment lines, said the bureau.
