FRANKTOWN, Colo. (AP) — One of two major wildfires burning on the outer reaches of Denver has been stopped.

Authorities say a 2½ square mile wildfire near Franktown was completely surrounded by fire lines Friday afternoon. The announcement comes just about 24 hours after the fire broke out and prompted the evacuation of about 8,500 people.

Another similar-sized fire burning in the foothills west of Denver is expected to be fully contained by the end of the day.
