Fire danger eases across much of Colorado
DENVER — The fire danger has eased across much of the state but remains high in parts of southern Colorado.
The National Weather Service says the area at greatest risk for fires today is the Interstate 25 corridor south of Pueblo County and the lower elevations of the Sangre de Cristo and Wet Mountains.
Snow was forecast for mountains in central and northwestern Colorado. The Denver area has also gotten some light snow, easing fire concerns there.
On Sunday a brush fire in Douglas County grew to about 100 acres before it was contained by firefighters.
Denver’s KCNC-TV reported that it was caused by downed power lines.
