Firefighting helicopters were seen flying over the area to help tackling the blaze, which is reportedly affecting 50 acres (20 hectares).
Colorado firefighters said there was no containment on the fire yet, but they were relying on lower temperatures on Tuesday to make progress.
No casualties were reported and no properties were destroyed in the blaze, which started west of Evergreen on Monday.
