Tractor Trailer Fire Closes Interstate 

56 year old Paul Englund was heading home to Mapleton when he noticed the smell of smoke. He pulled his rig over and unhooked the trailer. The truck burst into flames but England was still able to drive the truck forward and save his dog in the cab.

The truck was destroyed but he saved the trailer. The interstate was shut down for about 20 minutes while crews put out the fire. The fire was caused by an electrical problem.
