GRAND JUNCTION, Colo. — An agricultural burn is taking place in the Fruita area today.

Officials say it is located between “I” and “M” roads on 20 rd.

The amount of smoke created some visibility issues on local roadways today, but authorities want to assure you the fire is being monitored.

Agricultural burns are allowed year round, as long as no “burn bans” are in place.

As of today, there are no burn bans, and Lower Valley Fire District went out of their way to make sure the fire met regulations.
