3300 homes under preevacuation notice due fire in Douglas County”

The sheriff's office initially said they were evacuation orders that impacted 3,800 homes - something that it eventually downgraded, and finally cancelled all together.

The pre-evacuation notice was canceled around 8:30 p.m.

The smoke billowed from the so-called "Range Five Fire" burning near the Highlands Ranch Law Enforcement Training Facility.

Fire crews from South Metro Fire Rescue responded to the fire which was burning near dozens of homes.

The Douglas County Sheriff's Office sent the notices to people who live in the area south of Wildcat Reserve Parkway from Broadway to Griggs Road in Highlands Ranch.

It is unclear what started the fire.

Crews were going to keep battling the fire overnight.

There were at least 50 units working on the fire from several agencies.

South Metro Fire tweeted that the blaze has grown to 46 acres and firefighters are headed to the area to protect structures. Some of the terrain was steep. Fortunately, rain had moved into the area by late Friday night. A helicopter made water drops on the brush fire early in the evening. The smoke plume is visible from parts of Santa Fe Drive and C-470.
