JEFFERSON COUNTY, Colo. (KDVR) — The Hogback Fire, which burned through roughly 44 has been 100% contained, according to West Metro Fire Rescue.
The fire sparked on March 31 just off Interstate 70 in the afternoon and was burning along the hogback just north of Morrison. The fire was close enough to Red Rocks Amphitheatre for the venue to postpone the show headlined by Dabin scheduled for that evening.
However, that was not the only fire in the state. A brush fire in Aurora north of Parker Road and Chambers Road caused an evacuation from the Pioneer Hills neighborhood. The fire was contained at 3 acres.
After two days of mop-up and assessing the fire perimeter and interior, West Metro Fire announced the fire was 100% contained.
West Metro Fire warned the area is under high fire danger due to gusty winds.
