Firefighters make progress on Buffalo Fire in Summit County

SUMMIT COUNTY, Colo. -- Firefighters in Silverthorne say they are making progress battling the Buffalo Fire.

However, late Wednesday night, residents of evacuated areas were still not being allowed back in their homes.

Since Tuesday, the fire has burned about 90 acres near two large subdivisions. It was 20 percent contained.

Evacuees were told at a community meeting  the fire is still a threat.

“We really just want to go home. We just want to go home," evacuee Pam Mooney said.

Fire breaks are being credited with helping stop the fire from spreading.

“It’s obviously working and I”m grateful it’s here," Dustin Doss said.

Investigators say the fire was caused by humans.

But Summit’s fire chief asked people not to speculate about the exact cause.

Many people still have their cars packed and are ready to evacuate if necessary.
