A FLASH FLOOD WATCH will go into effect at NOON and last through MIDNIGHT from most of Southern Colorado. Scattered afternoon and evening thunderstorms will be more than capable of producing very heavy rain once again. Burn scars and areas that saw heavy rain yesterday will be under the greatest risk for flash flooding. The 11 Breaking Weather Team will be tracking this threat all day for you.
An explosion and fire prompted the evacuation of a car dealership in downtown Pueblo on Thursday.
A propane tank used to heat tar on a roofing trailer exploded about 10:30 a.m. at Diodosio Motors in downtown Pueblo. A second tank was also reported to be in danger of blowing up, but did not.
Smoke from the initial explosion poured across I-25, limiting visibility and shutting down the road for a few minutes. The 13th Street exit ramps and a 3-block stretch of Santa Fe were also closed while firefighters battled the flames.
No injuries were reported, and no damage estimate has been released.
