San Gabriel Canyon Road reopened

AZUSA — San Gabriel Canyon Road re-opened Saturday after being closed to the public since the outset of the Colby Fire earlier this month.
The roadway was reopened shortly after 5 p.m., Caltrans officials said in a written statement.
The road was shut down after the Colby Fire ignited near the Colby Trail north of Glendora Jan. 16 due to danger posed by the fire, as well falling rocks from the denuded hillside.
The fire grew to 1,952 acres, destroyed five homes and damaged 18 other buildings. It remained 98 percent contained Saturday, with full containment expected by Sunday, according to U.S. Forest Service officials.
