ORIGINAL STORY -
CRAWFORD - Highway 71 is currently closed indefinitely about 5 miles south of Crawford. Dawes County Sheriff Karl Dailey says an accident involving a semi caused a flatbed trailer to catch fire with the fire spreading to adjacent fields.
The closure is the result of both debris from the accident and the firefighting effort, and the reopening of the highway will depend on both.
