Westbound I-70 reopens after RV fire in Evergreen

EVERGREEN, Colo. — Westbound Interstate 70 was closed for about an hour after an RV caught fire Thursday afternoon, the Colorado Department of Transportation said.

The RV caught fire just after noon in the westbound lanes west of the Evergreen Parkway off-ramp and El Rancho on-ramp. It was pulling a trailer with ATVs, the Colorado State Patrol said.

All of the occupants got out and were evaluated by first responders, Evergreen Fire Rescue said.

Westbound I-70 was closed at mile marker 248 as crews worked to contain the fire. Eastbound lanes were closed briefly.

The cause of the fire is under investigation.
