DENVER — A semi truck rolled over and then caught fire Sunday night, shutting down the eastbound lanes of Interstate 70.

Another vehicle rolled during the accident near York, just past Brighton Boulevard according to Denver police.

It was not immediately known if anyone was injured, but police and fire crews were headed to the scene.

AllĀ eastbound lanes of I-70 are closed at York, and two westbound lanes are also shut down. All of those closures were lifted early Monday morning.
