Target shooting caused 60-acre fire near Electra Lake

Durango man unaware ammunition was incendiary
A 60-acre wildfire north of Durango near Electra Lake was started by tracer bullets, a small incendiary charge attached to the base of the projectile. When the bullet is fired, the powder in the casing ignites the charge and it glows as it flies through the air, allowing shooters to see it with the naked eye.
