Wildfire Continues to Hinder Calif. Zephyr

The route used by Amtrak’s California Zephyr between Denver and Salt Lake City remained closed on Monday due to a wildfire near Glenwood Springs, Colorado.

Although Amtrak last week detoured Nos. 5 and 6 via Wyoming it canceled the past fours days service between Denver and Salt Lake City without any alternative service.

News reports indicate that more than 500 firefighters have been battling the blaze, which had burned more than 25,600 acres. Four fires in the state have affected 130,000 acres.

Interstate 70 through Glenwood Canyon remains closed for 24 miles.
