A semi-truck carrying a trailer full of hay bales tipped over and caught on fire going westbound on I-70 closing exit 31 to Horizon Drive.

Emergency responders worked quickly to stop the fire from spreading off the interstate to the La Quinta Inn and Suites.

One La Quinta worker tells KREX she was first on scene with a fire extinguisher before the fire department arrived.

The fire started around 6:45pm and was put out by 8pm.

There are no injuries from the scene, and the fire did not make it over the fence separating the La Quinta and the interstate, however one panel of the fence was taken down for a hose to make it to the firetruck on the other side.
