HUERFANO COUNTY – The Reveille Wildfire burning in Huerfano County, north of Gardner, grew nearly 50 acres overnight.

The blaze is now close to 100 acres in size.

Firefighters have set up spike camps as a safety measure. These camps are used to provide basic supplies to wildland firefighters.

Fire crews and a helicopter are still putting in long hours to try and contain the flames.

The fire was started by lightning over a week ago in the Reveille Canyon.
