DOUGLAS COUNTY, Colo. — The 40-acre Turkey Track 7 wildfire is burning about 9 miles north of Woodland Park.

The National Forest Service says no structures are being threatened at this time.

It was first reported just after noon Tuesday.

As of Wednesday night the fire is 50% contained.

There will be smoke in the surrounding areas and the fire area remains closed to the public, likely through the weekend, to ensure the safety of firefighters and the public, according to NFS.

Additional resources arrived Wednesday night to relieve local engines and they will continue to work on the fire Thursday.
