PARACHUTE (AP) - More crews are expected Tuesday at a 100-acre fire burning six miles southwest of Parachute on public and private land.

Bureau of Land Management spokesman David Boyd says some structures are threatened but he doesn't know how many. The closest buildings are about a quarter-mile from the fire.

The fire started Monday around 7 p.m. Lighting is the likely cause.

The wildfire is burning in pinon pine and juniper trees.

A hot shot crew of 20 is fighting the fire and another crew has been requested. Five engines and two helicopters are also at the scene.
