Evacuations have been lifted for 67 properties in southeastern El Paso County after a wildfire was reported about in Hanover about 2:30 p.m., the El Paso County Sheriff's Office said.

The zone that briefly was ordered evacuated was bordered by Holman Road on the north, Peyton Highway on the west, Myers Road on the south, and Squirrel Creek on east, according to the Sheriff's Office.

The 25-acre fire burned in the 22700 block of Sage Brush Lane.

The Hanover Fire District, along with other agencies and the El Paso County wildlands fire crew, all responded to the fire.

Firefighters were putting out hot spots on the south end of the fire, according emergency radio dispatches.

A red flag warning remains in effect for El Paso, Pueblo, Huerfano, Eastern Las Animas Kiowa, Bent County, Prowers and Baca counties until 8 p.m. Tuesday.
