The fire was reported at about 11 a.m. Wednesday near the ski resort 50 air miles west of Denver.

A wildfire has scorched about 60 acres (24.3 hectares) and forced residents from their homes near the Colorado mountain town of Breckenridge.

Pre-evacuation notices have gone out to several hundred homes.

Eight Forest Service firefighters parachuted in, and two heavy tankers and a helicopter have been dropping slurry and water on the fire.

"We would like to take credit for that but we would like give credit to the wind because when the wind did shift it actually pushed the fire back into the burned area and actually slowed it down", says one firefighter. The Sheriff's Office encourages the public to comply with the evacuation order, which is in place for the safety of the public.

Wildfires are still burning in the western United States.

That grass and brush fire, which started Sunday and was burning in part on the Hanford Nuclear Reservation, is 85 percent contained and is not threatening any of the site's nuclear facilities.

In northern Nevada on Wednesday, fire officials advised residents to leave their homes with their animals ahead of one of several blazes sweeping across the hot, dry rangeland. "Wildfire is a natural disaster that happens with regularity". The cause of the fire remains under investigation.

People in Breckenridge, Gold Hill and Silver Shekel have also been asked to prepare for possible evacuation if the fire continues to grow.
