A very large response this morning for crews in western Eagle County. Greater Eagle Fire responded as mutual aid with Gypsum Fire for a tanker rollover between Gypsum and Dotsero. This tanker was found to be actively leaking fuel which activated a response from Eagle County’s Haz-Mat team. The interstate is estimated to be closed for 7 hours while crews evaluate and contain the spill. The Colorado State Patrol is investigating the crash.
