FAIRPLAY, Colo. (AP) — Authorities say a wildfire that burned less than a square mile in Park County might have been started by recreational shooting, and they're looking for a person of interest.

The U.S. Forest Service and the Park County Sheriff's Department said Monday they want to speak to the driver of a silver Chevrolet pickup about the March 17 fire in the Pike National Forest.

No one has been arrested. Authorities have asked anyone with information about the pickup to contact them.
