Rumors about people dressed as clowns planning violent attacks at Jeffco schools have been determined to be unfounded.
Two grass fires broke out about 2 p.m. Tuesday near the Kipling and Simms exits of U.S. 285, but both were quickly contained by West Metro firefighters.
Though the fire at the Simms Street exit was the larger of the two, spanning nearly 13 acres, the fire department received more calls about the blaze at the Kipling Street exit because of heavier traffic there, said Ronda Scholting, spokeswoman for West Metro Fire Rescue.
