A Colorado fire crew conducted a "defensive burn" operation on the southeastern edge of the Greenwood fire over the weekend.

DULUTH - Another 50 homes and cabins are under evacuation this afternoon as the Greenwood fire moves closer to state Hwy. 1, also causing some fire crews to retreat.

The Lake County Sheriff's Office is leading the evacuation of residences around Grouse and Mitawan lakes and several others in the area northwest of Isabella, said Matt Pollmann, the county's emergency manager.

The fire, he said, "is about to impact Hwy. 1 if it hasn't already."
