Light to moderate snow showers continue this Wednesday morning with cold temperatures to start the day. Roads are *very* icy and snow packed throughout southeast Colorado... so please allow extra time for the morning drive. Throughout the midday and afternoon, we'll keep the chance of some light, fine snow showers, but expecting minor accumulations through the day. Snow looks to finally push out this evening/overnight and our warm up begins. Head over to the "Weather' tab for a full look at the forecast.
Nearly 100 people who had to evacuate because of the Mauricio Fire, have returned to their homes in Las Animas and Huerfano Counties. Recent snow has helped crews fight the wind-driven fire.
The Huerfano County Sheriff's Office says it is actively seeking criminal charges. It is working with the District Attorney's Office, the Colorado Bureau of Investigation, and the U.S. Forest Service. Investigators do know the fire was human caused.
The Mauricio Fire has burned 4,500 acres. Crews have it 40% contained as of Tuesday night, and 87 firefighters are still working the fire lines. The fire has destroyed at least five homes. Wednesday night, the U.S. Forest Service says it will fly a plane over the fire, looking for hot spots using infrared technology.
