    Waterton Canyon Closed Because Of Wildfire

    DOUGLAS COUNTY, Colo. -- Waterton Canyon's popular trail in Douglas County will be closed to the public on Friday.

    That's because Forest Service vehicles need access to the Mill Gulch Fire.

    The small 3-acre fire is burning on U.S. Forest Service land in Douglas County.

    The fire started about 4 p.m. on Thursday. It's burning approximately 4.5 miles from the bottom of the canyon on a ridge.

    Officials believe the fire was sparked by lightning.

    The canyon is expected to reopen this weekend.

    Light rain on and off all night. A few more days of this and they might start easing back the fire restrictions. Right now though, the ground is just sucking it up. The trails aren't even muddy, or at least they weren't last night.
