Rain falls on wildfire near Rangely

RANGELY, Colo. (AP) Fire crews were monitoring a wildfire that grew 50 acres Sunday to 2,110 acres.

The Jelly fire was 90 percent contained and was expected to be fully contained Monday, a spokeswoman for the Craig Interagency Dispatch Center said. It was burning in a remote area about 20 miles east of Rangely.

Firefighters were battling a low relative humidity and winds, but containment lines were holding. Crews were watching the fire from the air.

Firefighters believe the blaze that started Aug. 12 was man-made.
