UTE PARK, N.M. (AP) — Officials say a lightning-caused wildfire on the Philmont Scout Ranch, five miles north of Ute Park near the Pueblano Campground, is now 100 percent contained.

The New Mexico State Forestry spokesman Dan Ware said Saturday that crews were able to contain the fire within a day. He says the small blazed charred around five acres.

Authorities say Boy Scouts were relocated Friday when the fire started to different parts of the ranch as a precautionary measure.
