Trailer Catches Fire North Of Craig

A flat-bed trailer carrying a backhoe caught fire Saturday evening on Highway 13, 9 miles north of Craig. The driver who was pulling the trailer, was able to get the backhoe off the trailer and had made progress controlling the blaze by the time Craig firefighters arrived on the scene. Crews were able to extinguish the trailer fire shortly after their arrival. The fire is believed to have been caused by a mechanical issue on the trailer. No one was injured in the incident.
