Grass Fire Catches Train Trestle On Fire in Eastern Colorado
A grass fire near Haswell, Colo. caught a train trestle on fire.
It's wildfire season in Colorado and currently, there are three active wildfires around the state.
A grass fire, that has been 100% contained, was three miles west of Haswell, Colo. but happened to catch this train trestle on fire. According to the Kiowa County Sheriff, the cause of the fire is unknown.
Currently, CO 96 is closed near mile marker 142 because of a bridge being out.
This is a reminder that we need to be careful during this dry time of the season.
The rail tracks are not in use and have been abandoned for years.
Needless to say, this photo is a beautiful disaster.
