A Grand Junction firefighter ringed by flames sprays a foam designed to put out fires in fuel containing ethanol during training at Suncor Energy, 2230 Railroad Ave., this morning.

Rock ‘n roll may never die, but it seems the long-running Rock Jam music festival has met that decidedly certain fate. Local fans of the festival took to social media to weigh in on the news Tuesday, after an email was sent to ticket-holders of the 2014 event about the cancellation. In the email, the new organizers of the former Rock Jam said the classic hard rock festival that takes place late each summer in Mack has been canceled for 2014 and would not return.
