A large brush fire in Colorado this week shut down I-70 for hours, resulting in major traffic. The cause? Someone tossed a cigarette out their car window. 

According to The Daily Sentinel in Grand Junction, the '25-acre blaze that jumped the interstate in De Beque Canyon and stopped traffic in both directions for about four hours.'

Just another reminder that it is really, really dry and hot in Colorado... and also littering just sucks!
