Grizzly Creek fire update: I-70 remains closed through Glenwood Canyon

Interstate 70 remains closed in both directions Tuesday through Glenwood Canyon as the Grizzly Creek fire continues to burn in the nearby canyon.

There is no estimated time for reopening the road between Glenwood Springs and Gypsum, with drivers advised to take alternative routes, Grizzly Fire officials said on a Facebook page.

Pre-evacuation notices have been issued to residents in No Name. No structures have been threatened, officials said Monday.

The fire, burning just east of Glenwood Springs, grew fast, consuming 1,300 acres as of Monday night. It closed the interstate Monday afternoon.
