More than 500 homes are under evacuation or pre-evacuation notice as a wildfire burns near Silverthorne. Officials said the fire is estimated to be 100 acres in size as it moved south during a storm yesterday.   

Fire officials said last night that they are not seeing containment on the fire at this time, but yesterday’s rain has helped.
