DOUGLAS COUNTY, Colo. -- A smoky scene in the mountains of Douglas County Monday afternoon as a brush fire near Cheesman Reservoir burned nearly two acres of land.

Firefighters worked in the hot conditions to quickly contain the fire before it grew any larger. They spent Monday night mopping up and dousing hot spots.

There were no evacuations and there was no damage other than the scorched land.

With temperatures rising this week, especially forecast to get into the 90s this holiday weekend, concerns are also rising about the potential for more destructive wildfires. It's prime wildfire time in Colorado with temperatures turning hot, and things quickly drying out.

Justin Joseph has information about how to stay safe in his video report.
