Authorities say a wildfire in northern Colorado that has burned more than 85 square miles is 45 percent contained.
More than 1,600 personnel are working on the fire about 15 miles west of Fort Collins. The lightning-caused blaze was reported June 9.
Cpl. Julie Berney of the Larimer County sheriff's office said early Sunday that the cost of the wildfire as of Saturday night was $10.8 million.
The High Park Fire has destroyed at least 181 homes, the most in state history. It's surpassed the Fourmile Canyon wildfire, which destroyed 169 homes west of Boulder in September 2010.
