The San Juan National Forest in southwestern Colorado is closed to visitors on Tuesday because of a large wildfire and dry, warm conditions that raise the risk of further blazes. Forests are also closed in Arizona and New Mexico in areas that are suffering from a severe drought.

Evacuation orders are in effect, as Colorado Public Radio reports on the blaze known as the 416 Fire:

Another wildfire, named the Burro Fire, has started on the San Juan National Forest, approximately 23 miles east of Dolores, CO. It was reported at 3:45 pm in the area near Burro Mountain on the Dolores Ranger District. As of 7 pm, it was estimated at around 30 acres, but there has not been time for accurate mapping and it is growing.

Rolling Stone wrote that the voice of The Who's Roger Daltrey was one of the most powerful instruments in rock. But when first it started in the 1960s, Daltrey's band was covering American soul songs. At the age of 74, the British rocker is returning to that music for his new solo album, As Long as I Have You.
