(CNN)Firefighters are battling a wildfire on a Colorado Army base.

The blaze, called the "Wild Horse Fire," is burning in a training area at Fort Carson in Colorado Springs.

It's already burned over 200 acres, base officials said.

The Wild Horse Fire doesn't currently threaten any people or property on the base, Fort Carson officials said in a statement on Sunday.

Fort Carson fire personnel believe the fire started on the west side of Colorado's Highway 115 and, due to high winds, jumped the highway.

Now it's burning in Fort Carson on the other side of the highway.

The Wild Horse Fire is one of the smallest and newest of several wildfires currently burning in Colorado.

The largest, the Cameron Peak Fire, has burned over 130,000 acres and is located just north of Rocky Mountain National Park.

Colorado's dry climate means the state is at a high risk of wildfires year-round.

It burned around 139,000 acres.
