A small fire has been reported in Jefferson County's Waterton Canyon.

7News reports that the small fire is near Strontia Springs Reservoir in Jefferson County.

Around 1:30 p.m. on Monday the fire was described as being half an acre in size. Waterton Canyon had been closed since last Thursday out of caution for the nearby Lime Gulch Fire and was reopened briefly on Monday when the fire broke out. The Douglas County Sheriff's Office says it has since been re-closed due to the fire.
