Firefighters from Elk Creek Fire have contained a small wildfire that burned a half acre at Staunton State Park in Conifer on Saturday afternoon.

According to Elk Creek Deputy Chief Jacob Ware, the fire was first reported at 2:11 p.m. and was found in an area about 3 miles from the West Meadow Trail. Nine firefighters responded to the fire, which was 100 percent contained as of 7 p.m.

Ware said that the fire was human-caused, stemming from an illegal campfire started at an illegal campsite in the park, separate from Staunton's official camping sites.
