Good morning. Here are 5 Things to Know for Monday, June 11, 2018.

1. 416 Fire continues to grow
The 416 Fire burning near Durango grew significantly over the weekend, fueled by hot, dry conditions. The fire nearly doubled in size Sunday to almost 17,000 acres. A total of more 2,100 homes have been evacuated as a result.

2. Kim, Trump prepare for historic summit
President Donald Trump and North Korean leader Kim Jong-Un are in Singapore ahead of Tuesday's historic meeting between the two leaders. Trump and Kim intend to talk about denuclearization on the Korean peninsula.

3. Denver mayor in Boston for mayors' conference
Denver Mayor Michael Hancock is in Boston for the U.S. Conference of Mayors' annual meeting, a gathering of more than 250 mayors from across the country. The mayors will be discussing issues of concern to their cities, like infrastructure, housing, immigration and school safety.

4. Net neutrality protection comes to an end
The repeal of Obama-era net neutrality protections takes effect today. The FCC voted in December to repeal the rules, which aim to prevent internet service providers from blocking, speeding up or slowing down access to specific sites or services online.

5. Slightly cooler to start the week
A cooler weather pattern will move back into the central Rockies Monday as a cold front moves through the region. The front won't bring any much-needed moisture, but it will drop temperatures back closer to seasonal normals Monday and Tuesday with highs in the 80s.
