here. it's calm now, by late this afternoon, 20 to 40-mile per hour winds from the front range to the north and east of us. and humidity levels will dive. as they do, that creates a really rough fire situation for us today. so, any fires that get started can react explosively. so grass fires can just take off in an instant from the denver area to the south. a red flag warning for extreme fire danger today. noon until 8:00. we'll be touching near 80 degrees today we'll take a look at what the weekend looks like. >> thanks, marty, it's 6:04. now that you have your day and weekend planned out weather wise, let's get you set on your morning drive. it's been a nice, easy start here across 70 and 225. fly over ramps through traffic as well as all of your ramps exiting under your streets are looking clear, but the volume is starting to pick up. out across the board, we've seen c470 with a few extra cars
a little busy. there is word of a two-car crash right in the middle of the intersection and that's a busy spot. overall, 25 to the north. has been less than 15 minutes on your drive even for southbounders, averaging in the mid 60s and further to the east, no issues getting to the airport. trains running on time, and clocking just 6 minutes. gary. >> thanks, amelia. as we mentioned at the top of the ow, deputies on a short chase through adams morning looking for a stolen truck. they found the truck, but didn't find anybody inside. thomas is at the scene now, she's near 96th and croak in thornton. hi. >> reporter: so we want to give you a look at this scene because sheriff deputies are here and not only are they here, they are looking a at that truck that was stolen. now this was in thornton. this is where it was found near 96th and croak. adams county sheriff deputies
see this investigator looking at the bottom railing of that floor board of the truck. we have seen him go inside. we have seen them look around the dash board. looking for evidence, because we don't know who is in this truck and where this person is, and if there's more than one person. whoever was driving got away. sky 9 is giving you a better view of what it looks like from above. this is a residential area. lots of houses off the beaten path, not a lot of businesses on this street. it's really just houses. t know is the fact that this suspect or suspects got away. and police don't know where this person or these people are. now they set up a perimeter for awhile. they brought in some dogs to look and snuff around and see if they could find a trace of the suspect or suspects. the dogs were not able to do that. they have broken down that perimeter. they are actively investigating. looking at this truck, searching to see what they could find. neighbors report hearing gun shots. deputies and police officers didn't fire their weapons and
this investigation as the mystery is unfolding. the big question is, where did this person go? police are trying to figure that out. >> we'll check back with you in a little bit. frontier airlines warning passengers they should get to the airport three hours before their flight today. the airline is doing a system computer upgrade. passengers will not be able to use the website mobile app or airport kiosk during that time. passengers will only be able to make changes at the ticket counter. this is a live look at the ticket counter and as you can see, it's pretty busy right now. the system upgrade comes days after frontier dealt with a mountain of customer complaints about delays at d.i.a., the wait at the flights 30 minutes or more. right now, security times are 30 minutes or more, too, and looking into whether that has anything to do with the lines at the frontier ticket counter.
that's what caused some of the delays earlier this week. >> i hope they are all going some place fun. keep your eye on the prize. okay. it's 6:08 now. after a few days on the run, law enforcement has caught up to a teenager, jeffrey collins, is accused of brutally beating a 71-year-old woman. with the help of u.s. marshalls, police arrested him thursday night. he was booked on a warrant for attempted first-degree murder and first-degree assault of an at risk adult. collins monday and attacked the woman who offered him a ride and a place to stay. she has a terrible head injury, several broken bones and cuts. collins was with two friends who reported that attack and then helped investigators. this morning, three suspects are in custody after a string of crimes started in denver and went through longmont and into la fayette. no officers were hurt. this all started at 1:15 thursday afternoon when police
