Hundreds of lemons spill onto Colorado interstate after truck catches fire


A semi-truck fire forced the closure of a Colorado interstate when its contents – hundreds of lemons – spilled out onto the eastbound lane. 

“I-70 EB is closed while firefighters extinguish the fire. Cleanup of the semi and cargo will be extended so expect delays,” the Colorado State Patrol (CSP) wrote in a tweet following the Jefferson County incident on Wednesday. “The driver is ok and the truck was hauling lemons.”
