Royal Gorge Fire Human Caused

By  | 

One of Colorado's major fires last year is believed to be human-caused.

The Canon City Police Department confirmed the cause of the Royal Gorge Fire on Friday, but didn't elaborate further.

The fire burned about 3,000 acres and destroyed much of the Royal Gorge Bridge and Park. The iconic bridge was one of only a few structures at the park left standing after the fire.

The park is in the process of rebuilding, and broke ground on Jan. 31.

No homes were lost in the fire, and there were no injuries.
