Fire crews spent the last few days battling a wildfire along Hwy. 115 and on Fort Carson, with 10 percent containment reported as of press time Tuesday. Dubbed the Wild Horse Fire, it was located south of Fort Carson's Gate 6 and north of Turkey Creek.
The fire broke out on the west side of Hwy. 115 early Sunday afternoon, but high winds caused it to jump the highway quickly and it began burning a Fort Carson training area. Within 24 hours, it had burned 580 acres, and some mandatory evacuations had been ordered. At least 100 firefighters from multiple area agencies were on hand.
