The Pueblo County Sheriff's Office has reported that a small fire currently burning in the St Charles River Canyon area between Rye and Colorado City may have been sparked by lightning. Crews are on scene and aerial drops have been made to gain control of what has now been described as a 15 acre fire burning in the river basin area. Local witnesses have reported to News First 5 that there are some structures near the area.
We have a crew working to get to the scene now.
