Trailer Fire Closes Highway 13

Highway 13 was closed for a period of time Wednesday night north of Rifle, after a camp trailer being pulled by a truck caught fire. The highway had to be shut down due to live ammunition in the trailer that emergency crews feared might ignite. Firefighters were able to get the fire extinguished before any of the rounds went off. No one was injured in the incident. The cause of the fire is under investigation.
