COLORADO SPRINGS, Colo. (AP) -- Colorado Highway 14 is closed at mile marker 104 following mudslides in the High Park wildfire burn area, which has been hit with rain.
The National Weather Service issued a flash flood warning for the western part of the burn area through 4:45 p.m. Monday.
Further south, an area burned by the Waldo Canyon Fire near Colorado Springs received rain, but no flooding was immediately reported. Up to 1 1/2 inches of rain fell in less than an hour on the northern side of the burn area near Rampart Reservoir.
National Weather Service meteorologist Eric Petersen says more rain is possible.
Charred hillsides are vulnerable to erosion and flooding during downpours because they have less vegetation to soak up rain, and burned soils can repel water.
