The Carson Midway Fire, which burned 3,300 acres near the Fort Carson training area, has been completely contained except for some tires that remain burning.

Evacuations were ordered Friday for people who live in the Midway Ranch area after the wildfire spread beyond the Fort Carson base Friday morning.

El Paso County Sheriff Bill Elder said several buildings have been lost in the fire, but could not provide an exact number by Saturday morning. The fire began at Fort Carson's range 155, but grew and is now burning south of Fountain. The El Paso County Sheriff's Office says residents may go to the center for resources, fire information and other assistance.

According to Pueblo West Fire Department, the fire flared up just before 10 a.m. If you are evacuating, officials advise that all residents take their pets with them.

Approximately 100 Pueblo County residents living in the Midway Ranch area were evacuated.

A large animal shelter was set up at the Colorado State Fairgrounds. The Hanover School District cancelled all afternoon activities and afternoon preschool, and announced that parents can pick up their children at the high school, KOAA reported.

Fire Personnel from within El Paso County, Pueblo County and Ft. It started on Fort Carson in the vicinity of a training excercise.

The investigation is ongoing but so far no arrest have been made.
