Witnesses say Palisade blaze started by fireworks show at Peach Festival

PALISADE, Colo. (KKCO/KJCT) Witnesses say a large blaze broke out after a fireworks show at the Palisade Peach Festival.

The fire is between Talbott Farms and the Colorado River.

East Orchard Mesa, Palisade, Clifton, Grand Junction and Lands End Fire Departments were all on scene.

No word on size, injuries or structures threatened but we're told the fire spread quick because of gusty winds.

Mesa County was in a red flag warning until 8 p.m. Friday night.

We spoke to festival organizers Friday morning. They told us, despite the warning, they'd move forward with the fireworks show.

We're working to gather more information and will update this article as details become available.
