Semi Catches Fire

KSAL StaffAugust 31, 2015

RFD 3 responded to a semi truck that caught fire on eastbound I-70 at the Brookville exit Sunday afternoon.

Robin Reeve, 63, of La Salle, Colorado felt a shake in his vehicle while driving and checked his mirrors. The right side front tires of the trailer he was hauling were loose, and by the time he was able to stop the vehicle, the back tires and right side door to the trailer were on fire.

Reeve attempted to put it out with his fire extinguisher, but the flames were too strong.

He was carrying 50,000 lbs. of scrap aluminum.
