The Teller County Wildland Taskforce says a fire that sparked in southwest Teller County Monday is likely to continue smoldering through at least Tuesday.

25 firefighters are monitoring the area after containing the one-half acre fire that started in a debris pile at a ranch off of Teller County Road 1.

Firefighters say the pile is approximately 80 yards by 30 yards and 10 feet deep.

The cause of the fire is under investigation.
