CAÑON CITY, Colo. (KDVR) — Firefighters brought the YMCA fire, about 4 miles southwest of Cañon City, to 40% containment on Friday night.

The lightning-caused fire has burned 293 acres so far, with helicopters making bucket drops of water through the day in areas not accessible by ground crews.

Firefighters say the relative humidity and light winds Friday night helped with containment.
