PARKER, Colo. (CBS4) - A spark from a lawnmower is blamed for a grass fire in Parker on Saturday as temperatures climbed into the 70s by midday. South Metro firefighters stopped the fire from growing toward more dry fuel near the Sulphur Gulch Trail.

They rushed to the scene near Highway 83 and Main Street in Parker at around 12 p.m.

No structures were threatened or damaged. There were also no reported injuries.
