Denver Fire working to put out large trash fire

DPD closed Holly Street from 46th Avenue to 48th Avenue due to the fire.

DENVER — The Denver Fire Department (DFD) is working to put out a large trash fire near Interstate 70 and Holly Street on Monday morning. 

Greg Pixley, the spokesperson with Denver Fire, said about 70 firefighters are working to put out a large trash fire near I-70 and Holly Street. 

Pixley tells 9NEWS that firefighters are working quickly to put out the fire. He said that there are some environmental concerns based on what's burning.

He said it is unclear what caused the fire.  

The Denver Police Department has Holly Street from 46th Avenue to 48th Avenue closed as firefighters put out the fire. 

It is unclear how long roads in the area will be closed, and alternate routes are advised. 

South Metro Fire rescue said crews responded to several reports of smoke and a burning odor between Cherry Hills Village and Highlands Ranch Monday morning, and determined the odor was likely coming from the trash fire in Denver.
