Xcel Energy was called because high-tension power lines were down due to the fire.

West bound I-70 has been closed at C-470.

Five agencies were working the fire and so far no structures are threatened.

According to the Jefferson County Sheriff’s Office, the fire was caused by trash that blew out of a truck that hit a power line.
