EB closed, WB closed, Central City FD also enroute now with a tanker, down water users "coors brewery" being notified, Capt enroute from Frisco and hazmat and MCSAP from Golden.

Fire is not U/C.

Trailer Lights Up In Flames, Closes I-70
By Jesse Sarles, cbs4denver.com

(CBS4) DENVER A trailer that was pulled over on the side of the Interstate 70 1 mile east of Idaho Springs Friday night lit up in flames and sent such thick smoke out that Colorado State Patrol officers closed the entire highway.

Traffic was being diverted onto a frontage road at 10:45 p.m.

The driver of the vehicle apparently was unharmed and no other injuries were reported.

At one point the fire was seemingly extinguished but then 20 to 30 foot flames poured from the vehicle once again.

Colorado State Patrol officials said there was possibly a plastic-based object or chemical in the trailer.
