Berthoud U/D: Ocean 2 requesting a Structure engine code 3 to protect a house, where the home owner has already activated his personal foam protection unit.

LARIMER COUNTY - A wildfire was 50 percent contained Friday evening after it burned around 40 acres near Berthoud.

Authorities say no structures were lost to the North View Road Fire and no one was injured.

The fire was down to around 20-25 acres in size by 8:30 p.m. Authorities say the humid and cool weather helped them with the fire.

The Larimer County Sheriff's office was notified about the fire around 11:20 a.m.

It is southwest of Carter Lake and was burning in a north-northwest direction.

Loveland, Johnstown, Hygiene and Berthoud fire departments and Larimer County Emergency Services are working the fire.

A single engine air tanker is also working the fire and a second has been requested.

No evacuations have been ordered because of the fire.

The Larimer County Sheriff's office says the fire started because a homeowner had some heavy equipment that hit a rock which caused a spark. He apparently tried to put it out but had to call for help.
