All southbound lanes of I25 between marker 185 and 186 were closed briefly this afternoon as units from Evansville Fire EMS, Casper Fire-EMS, Wyoming Highway Patrol, Natrona County Sheriffs Office, Evansville Police Department and Wyoming Medical Center responded to a crash.

According to a press release from Evansville Fire EMS, units were dispatched to the area Saturday afternoon following reports of a truck on its side with an attached camper that was on fire.  Upon arrival, crews found a 1/2 ton pickup truck with an attached camper trailer both fully involved with fire.  A propane tank mounted on the camper was actively venting and small explosions were heard coming from the vehicle.

Responders “began an aggressive attack on the fire” and extinguished the blaze.  Both the truck and trailer are a total loss, but no other vehicles were damaged during the incident.
