No structures threatened by western Colorado fire

GRAND JUNCTION – Fire managers are allowing a 300-acre blaze north of Grand Junction to burn in the remote Little Books Cliffs Wilderness Study Area but say they’re closely monitoring the flames.

Smoke could be seen from at times Monday from as far away as Grand Junction and Interstate 70, but the fire wasn’t threatening any structures.

The fire was believed to have been started by lightning on Bureau of Land Management lands. Managers are allowing the fire to play its natural role in burning up vegetation.
