RULISON, Colo. (AP) - A brush fire that burned about 50 acres of rural Garfield County destroyed a home near Rulison before fire officials got the flames under control.

The Post Independent reports (https://bit.ly/28Jnbuf ) that the brush fire had already engulfed the home when Garfield County officials arrived on the scene Sunday. There were no reported injuries to humans or animals.

The fire did not reach any other structures and a helicopter helped drop water on the flames.

Sunday’s brush fire was the second reported in the area in the past week. A fire between Rifle and Rulison closed westbound traffic on Interstate 70 for several hours on Wednesday.
