BERTHOUD, Colo. (CBS4) — Emergency crews shut down a street in Berthoud as firefighters battled a grass fire in that was burning near structures on Saturday morning. The fire damaged an RV camper and possibly other vehicles, according to the Berthoud Fire Protection District.

Both lanes of 1st Street between Water Avenue and East CR 12 were blocked by emergency vehicles for about an hour and a half — until all remaining hot spots were “mopped up.” West CR 10E was closed between NCR 15C and 1st so firefighters could lay a hose across the road to the nearest hydrant.
