Gusty wind, low relative humidities, warm temperatures, and dry fuels will all combine to produce high fire danger this afternoon and early evening. Red Flag Warning goes into effect at Noon and lasts until 8pm. Please, no outdoor burning or use of flammable materials. Head to the "Weather" Tab for more information on the forecast.
Traffic is once again moving smoothly on westbound Highway 24 after a rock slide closed portions of the highway Thursday morning.
At one point, the entire westbound side of the highway was closed.
State Patrol first received the call around 5:38 a.m. about rocks blocking all of the westbound right lane and portions of the left lane about a mile outside of Cascade.
Crews from CDOT and State Patrol were able to get the area cleared a little after 8 a.m.
