A 3-acre highway grass fire ignited early Saturday morning in Ken-Caryl Ranch, but the flames were fully contained within five hours.

Around 1:30 a.m., a 911 caller reported visible flames near the Hogback at Ken-Caryl and C-470. Crews from West Metro Fire Rescue checked the highway and ultimately discovered the blaze on the west side of the Hogback.

Firefighters attacked the flames for several hours, controlling the fire by 3 a.m. but remaining on scene until 5 a.m., according to information from 5280 Fire’s social media account.
