Firefighters respond to I-70 semi-fire

Wednesday, November 24, 2021

On Wednesday morning, local firefighters responded to a semi-fire on I-70 rerouted the interstate traffic to find alternate routes. The fire occurred near the eastbound 32 mile-marker, shutting down all lanes. Traffic was directed to exit at the I-70 at the Brazil exit, which caused numerous semis to pick south on State Road 59 to US 46 or north to US 40 in Brazil. These photos were submitted to The Brazil Times by readers who were in the "right spot at the right time."
