Firefighters Thursday made progress against a massive wildfire 15 miles west of Fort Collins, Colorado, but the blaze was still causing problems, officials said.

The High Park Fire, which has consumed 52,000 acres, jumped Highway 14, prompting the evacuations of 80 residents at Stevens Gulch. Additional residents in the area were on standby to evacuate.
