LIMON, CO (KUSA) -Westbound Interstate 70 is closed in Colorado due to a huge pile-up crash in the Limon area.

According to the Colorado Department of Transportation, most of the vehicles involved in the wrecks are semi-trucks. Crews are also trying to put out a semi-truck fire. The fire is about 17 miles west of Limon near Agate.
