HIGHLANDS RANCH, Colo. - Fire crews are working to continue a brush burning just south of Highlands Ranch. 

Over 3,000 homes in the area south of Wildcat Reserve Parkway from Broadway to Griggs Road were placed on pre-evacuation, but it was quickly lifted. 

What is being called the Range 5 Fire has burned around 40 to 50 acres near Daniels Park in Douglas County.

A helicopter was used earlier in the day to dump water on the flames.

Those who live near the fire should expect to see continued police prescense as they monitor it through the night.
