Evergreen firefighters were able to put out a remote, lightning-caused fire on Friday after it was reported by motorists on Interstate 70 near the Floyd Hill exit.
Crews hiked in about 300 yards from the nearest road to the 1.5-acre fire near the U.S. 40 and Beaver Brook Canyon, said Evergreen Fire Chief Mike Weege.
Wet weather helped firefighters keep the fire under control, creating huge plumes of smoke that were reported by motorists on Interstate 70. People near U.S. 6 in Golden Gate Canyon to the north also reported seeing burning trees, he said.
