A search and rescue team responded Sunday to a reported rock fall and avalanche on Mount Meeker in Rocky Mountain National Park that might have involved three climbers.

Other climbers in the area reported the falling rocks and avalanche at about 9 a.m., park spokeswoman Kyle Patterson said in a statement.

Several other agencies were helping with the search. Patterson said the Upper Beaver Meadows Road was temporarily closed for air operations.
