Fire Closes Highway 13

Highway 13 was closed 24 miles south of Craig Sunday afternoon, due to poor visibility caused by a wildfire. Firefighters responded just before 12:30 and had the 4 acre fire, which burned on both sides of the highway, extinguished in about 3 hours. Crews found the remnants of a semi tire near the fire’s origin, so it’s believed it was caused by a blowout on a tractor-trailer.
