DENVER — More warm and dry weather and strong winds are raising the wildfire danger across much of Colorado's front range.
A red flag warning has been issued for much of the eastern half of the state on Tuesday.
On Monday, a wildfire near Hygiene in Boulder County forced evacuations and destroyed three outbuildings and a barn before containing about 75 percent of it. Firefighters were able to keep the Rabbit Mountain Fire from spreading significantly overnight despite strong winds.
In Weld County on Monday, a 30-acre grass fire burned a barn and an attached garage between Longmont and Frederick before being contained. Evacuations were also ordered.
