DENVER (KDVR) — Crews are battling a forest fire on a mountain in Douglas County Sunday.

The Douglas County Sheriff’s Office told FOX31 the call reporting the Bear Creek Fire fire came in around 10 a.m.

The U.S. Department of Agriculture Forest Service said lightning sparked the fire about 14 miles northwest of Castle Rock in the South Platte Ranger District, which is near Platte Canyon Reservoir.

Two helicopters, one from Douglas County and one from the U.S. Forest Service, and a hand crew were working to suppress the fire.
