If your child attends Redlands Middle School, the Fruita 8/9 school or Fruita Monument High School and rides buses 18, 25, 27, 3, or 113, the buses are running, but will be detoured due to the brushfire on the Redlands this afternoon. As a result, it may take longer for students to arrive home.
Students who are normally dropped off on 20 Road between Broadway and South Broadway, or who live in the Preserves have been asked to make arrangements to have parents pick them up at their child’s school.
Broadway has been reopened in both directions. Officials say fire crews have contained the fire in the Preserve subdivision but personnel and vehicles are still in the area mopping up hot spots.
Watch 11News tonight at 5:30 p.m. and 10 p.m. for details on this fire.
