GUFFEY, Colo. (AP) -- Firefighters battling an 1,100-acre wildfire in Park County in Colorado are hoping to gain ground on the blaze thanks to slightly cooler weather.

The fire was about 10 percent contained Saturday and 100 people are still under an evacuation order. Spokeswoman Sheryl Decker said only a shed and a camping trailer have burned.

Fire crews were attacking the fire on the ground and in the air and hoping to build containment line around more of the fire.
