As of 11:30 Friday morning, the South Canyon fire near mile marker 112 westbound on I-70 is 100 percent contained, according to Glenwood Springs Fire Chief Gary Tillotson. However, Tillotson said the fire isn't considered fully under control by the Bureau of Land Management as there may be some internal hot spots inside the containment lines.

Firefighters are expected to monitor the fire throughout the weekend, but won't be doing any active work on the mountain. Tillotson added that no more closures on I-70 westbound are expected.

As of Friday morning, the fire investigator has not determined a cause.
