JEFFERSON COUNTY, Colo. (CBS4) – Officials have closed Waterton Canyon in Jefferson County after a small wildfire broke out.

The canyon was scheduled to be closed on Friday after the 3-acre Mill Gulch Fire started on Thursday.

The closure will allow forest firefighting crews to get back and forth from the fire area without being slowed down.
