Fire has not crossed I-70. Type one Hotshots firefighting team expected in today.

Over 12,000 acres. Fire is 5% contained (9:00 a.m.)

As of 7:30 a.m., one lane of I-70 was open both directions through De Beque Canyon (between mile markers 49 and 62). Additional closures of I-70 in this area are likely today due to firefighting activity and possible smoke. At this time the alternate route around this closure is open. From DeBeque head south on the DeBeque Cutoff Road (45 1/2 Road) to Highway 65 and back to I-70. If the fire crosses the interstate or if smoke becomes a problem, this alternate route could be closed as well.
