A storm system will begin to impact Southern Colorado by late Friday morning. Mountain locations will simply see snow, but lower elevations will see rain eventually change to snow by later Friday afternoon. Locations that are higher in elevation will see the heaviest snow, due to them seeing cooler temperatures. So, Teller County, far northwest El Paso County, and the Wet & Sangre de Cristo Mountains will likely see several inches of wet snow. The major cities will see far less amounts and the storm will exit toward early Saturday morning.
Investigators now say an arson fire that destroyed an Aurora warehouse last month was linked to drugs. Fire investigators believe the blaze was set to cover the theft of an ingredient in cold medicine used to make methamphetamine.
Aurora fire officials called the Dec. 21 blaze at the Fleming Convenience Warehouse the largest fire in the city's history.
The warehouse was a storage site for convenience store supplies.
At least three men including a former warehouse employee are in custody on unrelated charges. They could face additional state or federal charges related to the fire.
