Large out of control fire in Montrose overnight, they had to page out all their off duty firemen. Idiots actually burning fields and ditches in this 40mph wind here.

Red Flag Fire Warning, High Wind Warning today. Oh and Freeze Warning too.

Wondering what's causing the haze, it's pretty thick. Can't see much of the mountains, from Voyager & Interquest area. I had a coworker say he thought it was the airport fire, but I'm not sure about that. Seems that was just a structure fire, part of a roof, and they've got that out (yes? no?) but I'm guessing it might be either the Rampart 67 fire up near Sedalia, or maybe just blowing dust. The wind is nuts out there!

I think its mostly dust I've been driving I-25 for most of the morning and my car was literally getting pushed around by the wind.
