BOULDER, Colo. (AP) — Fire managers are confident a fire burning in the foothills west of Boulder isn’t going to spread any farther.

The fire is burning on a 10-square-mile area and about half of the perimeter now has fire lines built around it.

National incident team spokesman Terry Krasko said Saturday that the fire isn’t spreading and that crews are focusing on putting out fires burning inside the perimeter.

The fire has burned at least 169 homes within that perimeter.

Nearly 1,000 firefighters from 20 states have been working on the fire but Krasko says eight engine crews will start leaving Saturday.
