Good morning. Here are 5 Things to Know for Monday, June 4, 2018.

1. 416 Fire 10 percent contained
The 416 Fire in southwestern Colorado is about 2,255 acres in size and 10 percent contained as of Monday morning. More than 1,800 homes and businesses are under evacuation and pre-evacuation notices. Firefighters don’t expect to have the fire contained until the end of June.

2. Deadly eruption in Guatemala
The search for survivors is ongoing following the eruption of Guatemala’s Fuego volcano over the weekend. At least 25 people were killed as the eruption blanketed nearby villages in ash and sent lava flowing down the mountain.

3. FBI dance floor shooting investigation continues
Video from over the weekend showed an off-duty FBI agent showing off his dance moves at a Denver bar and doing a backflip when his gun fell out of his waistband. As he picked the gun back up, it went off, hitting someone in the leg. The agent then walked away. The district attorney’s office will determine whether to file any charges.

4. DA decision in I-25 Uber shooting
The Denver DA will likely decide this week whether to go forward with murder charges against an Uber driver accused of shooting and killing a passenger on I-25 last week. Michael Hancock, 29, is being held without bond in the death of his 45-year-old passenger on Friday. Police say Hancock claims the passenger attacked him.

5. Beautiful weather all week
Rain chances will stay quite low for most of the work week but a few storms are possible on the plains each afternoon through Wednesday. We’ll see temperatures in the 90s at lower elevations and in the 80s in the mountains.
