KELLY WERTHMANN: We have some new information on this breaking news we've been following all morning. Right now, I-70 is partially closed from Kipling to Wadsworth because of a semi-truck fire. Three lanes are now open, but two are still closed. This happened just before 1 o'clock this morning.

CDOT spent the night inspecting the bridge there and the road for any damage. A cleanup company is clearing away any remaining diesel, and we're told the cleaning is going to go on well into the afternoon. So keep that in mind if you're heading anywhere on the interstate. We've got your forecast next.
