This call went out as a rollover vehicle crash with fire.  The vehicle was reportedly on it’s roof and on fire.

70 West Fire Troops arrived quickly and assisted the driver and passers by that stopped to help get the burning cargo out from the bed of the full sized pick-up truck.  It looked like the cargo consisted of household and personal items including mattresses and photographs.

No injuries were reported that I am aware of.  The fire started while the truck was traveling on the highway.  The cause of the fire was not known before I departed the scene.

Traffic flow was interrupted for approximately 40 minutes.
