LA JUNTA, Colo. (CBS4) – Strong winds caused a big pileup of tumbleweeds in La Junta on Friday.
Roads were covered in tumbleweeds. Crews collected all the tumbleweeds they could find and then burned them. Unchecked the tumbleweeds would have been a big fire hazard.
Firefighters say they burned well over a million tumbleweeds.
