Crews Battling Blaze Near Glenwood Springs Get Help From Nature

Glenwood Springs (AP) Rain helped firefighters get a better handle on a fire burning northeast of Glenwood Springs. White River National Forest Spokeswoman Kristi Panozzo says the blaze grew by about ten acres since Monday to 30 acres and isn't threatening any structures.

She says it is 67% contained.

Glenwood Caverns Adventure Park and a restaurant at the park were open Tuesday. Workers Monday had left as a precaution.
