GOLDEN, Colo. -- Firefighters worked to put out hot spots and contain a fire Friday that broke out on South Table Mountain on Thursday afternoon.

By Saturday night, the fire was 100 percent contained, West Metro Fire said.

The fire burned about 66 acres and was dangerously close to the Coors Brewing plant. After being at 0 percent containment on Friday morning, crews were able to reach 90 percent containment about 3:45 p.m. Friday, the Jefferson County Sheriff's Office said.

Crews monitored flare-ups and worked to put out hot spots overnight Thursday. West Metro Fire said it was a "relatively quiet night" with fewer firefighters on the scene.

There were 25 agencies and 68 firefighters on the ground, but there were concerns that if the wind shifted from the northwest to the east homes could be threatened.

Firefighters were hampered by steep terrain, loose rocks, heavy brush and rattlesnakes. Two helicopters were used to help fight the fire on Friday.

Sheriff's office spokeswoman Jenny Fulton said firefighters are working to keep the fire within a perimeter. She said the fire is not a threat to the brewery, but if winds shift and the fire moves toward Golden, there could be evacuation notices issued.

One firefighter has suffered minor injuries. The cause of the fire is under investigation.
