On Tuesday afternoon, a community called No Name was ordered to evacuate as the Grizzly Creek Fire continues to burn. Firefighters have also evacuated campers and outdoor recreationists in the area.

Interstate 70 between Glenwood Springs and Gypsum continues to be closed with no estimated time of reopening. As of the latest update, 125 firefighters were currently working on stopping the blaze. 

Because the terrain of the canyon is so rugged, it limits where firefighters can be placed on the ground. Fire activity is expected to increase as the day goes on amid dangerous fire conditions.

The fire is currently estimated to be 1,832 acres in size. It was previously reported at 1,300 acres.

This is a developing story.
