GOLDEN, CO - A small grass fire was spotted burning in the foothills near the Coors Brewery in Golden Thursday afternoon.

The blaze was seen burning behind South Table Mountain, about 2 miles west of 32nd Ave & McIntyre. West Metro Fire, who is assisting Fairmount Fire, says it's estimated to be 5 to 10 acres.

Firefighters haven’t said what the cause is.

Red flag and high wind warnings are in place for a large potion of the Denver metro and the northeast portion of the state.

Those in the affected areas are being asked to avoid activities that could create sparks or otherwise start fires.

It was one of numerous grass fires that broke out Thursday in wake of unusually warm temperature and windy conditions.
