Heavy rain over the 416 Fire burn scar near Durango has forced road closures and left residents and businesses dealing with a muddy mess. 

A photo from the Durango Herald shows the debris left behind at one home after Tuesday’s floodwaters swept through. 

Highway 550 and several county roads were closed for about four hours Tuesday. 

The flooding also interfered with the railroad, with around 800 passengers on the Durango and Silverton train forced to get off and take a bus back to Durango.
