Reported grass fire closes stretch of US 285

JEFFERSON COUNTY - A grass fire that was reported Monday morning closed a stretch of US 285.

Jefferson County Dispatch confirms the highway is closed between Jubilee Trail and South Elk Creek Road.

In addition to a fire, dispatch says there’s also possibly a downed power line.

Firefighters say the small blaze is almost under control and nearly out. The road was closed because smoke was cutting down on visibility, Capt. Stacee Martin with Evergreen Fire said.  

There’s no word on when the road could reopen.
