A wildfire burns on Taft Hill south of Harmony on Saturday, July 22, 2017.

A wildfire in Larimer County, sparked by a field mower, is 100 percent contained, fire officials said Monday.

The Spring Glade wildfire has burned 371 acres of shrub and grass along Colorado’s northern Front Range between Loveland and Fort Collins.

On Monday there was no growth in the wildfire, which started Saturday, although residents and passers-by will still see smoke, according to the sheriff’s office.

Investigators have determined that the fire was accidental, caused by a “mechanical failure in mowing equipment,” the sheriff’s office said. “No criminal charges will be filed.”
