Interstate 70 was closed in both directions near Byers due to a wildfire, but has since reopened.

BYERS, Colo. — Evacuation orders have been lifted for residents in Byers as a wildfire continues to burn nearby.

The 100-acre fire is near County Road 173 and Interstate 70. County Road 173 is also known as Bradbury Road.

The Arapahoe County Sheriff’s Office (ACSO) said that no structures were lost in the fire.

Firefighters are in the area monitoring the fire for signs of another flare up, ACSO said. They also said there is still a lot of smoke and wind in the area.

More than 100 residents living in the Royal Mobile Home Park and on Cheyenne and Arapahoe Streets were evacuated, according to ACSO.

Interstate 70 was closed in both directions near Byers. The closure began at 12:23 p.m. Tuesday, and by 2:04 p.m., the stretch of road reopened in both directions, according to a tweet from the Colorado Department of Transportation (CDOT). 

The fire is about 10 miles east of Bennett.
