(CBS4) – Parts of Cherry Creek State Park will remain closed on Monday after a grass fire on Sunday. The road behind the east entrance station to the shooting range will stay closed.

The closure will allow crews with South Metro Fire Rescue to continue to contain and mop up the fire. The fire burned about 100-150 acres on the northwest side of the park.
