Crews battle Rabbit Mountain Fire in Boulder County

Two helicopters and various overhead resources are assigned to the fire.

Two fires on Green Mountain, west of Lakewood, burned on Sunday night and continued into Monday morning but posed no current threat to homes or other buildings, according to emergency responders.

No one was injured, but three outbuildings, a barn and at least one vehicle were destroyed.

The Rabbit Mountain Fire is now 100 percent contained, though today's forecasted high winds are a concern.

Boulder County is under a fire weather watch Tuesday. No residents or firefighters were injured, but one horse did suffer minor injuries.

A news alert from the N.C Forest Service reported that 134 acres have burned on Cold Mountain as of Sunday afternoon. No structures were damaged during the blaze along Highway 115 and Pawnee Road.

The fire broke out along Ute Highway between Longmont and Lyons and was moving towards Rabbit Mountain.

There are now 9 fire agencies responding to the fire which officials say is believed to be around 50 to 75 acres at this time.

On Feb. 10, on a day when winds blew beyond 70 miles per hour, fires broke out at Frog Belly Farm west of Longmont and along Wagon Wheel Gap northwest of Boulder.
