Semi-Trailer Truck Catches Fire on I-70, Destroys Thousands of Bottles of Heineken

Published: February 10, 2020 002 10:00 am


firemen trying to extinguish a burning firetruck on a highway | semi-trailer truck catches fire on i-70A semi-truck owned by Nebraska company, K & B Transportation Inc., caught fire on Interstate 70 near Strasburg, around 2 a.m. on the morning of Thursday, February 6th.

According to the Colorado State Patrol, the semi was headed west on I-70, when the driver of another vehicle alerted the truck driver to smoke coming from the rear end of the semi-truck. The truck driver stopped the semi, and it then burst into flames fully engulfing the trailer. 

Thankfully the truck driver was uninjured. The driver’s attempts at extinguishing the fire failed, but emergency response crews responded to the scene and extinguished the fire. The trailer was unsalvageable. 

The truck had been carrying thousands of bottles of Heineken for delivery to Denver. Sadly, the beer could not be saved. 

The semi-truck fire closed down I-70 for about two hours, and the cause of the fire is still under investigation at the time of this writing.

I have worked with Greg Gold and his attorneys on a number of personal injury cases for our clients. His law firm is very creative and extremely talented. I would recommend him to anyone dealing with a car accident, insurance dispute, or catastrophic injury claim.

Jessica Yates -


The Gold Law Firm and Greg took on my unique case when no one else would. They were amazing through the whole process. Making sure we clearly understood everything. Always taking extra time to answer all our questions. In the end we got justice! I just learned that now they have a special victims unit, and it warms my heart to know that someone is there for those unique victims.

Janet Christensen -


This is a top-notch law firm who puts their client first. Colleen Parsley walked me through all the steps of my lawsuit. She is the best lawyer you can partner with. Mike Rosenberg was the insurance specialist and has outstanding expertise. Between the two of them we were able to settle my claim with two different insurance companies who had no intention of settling with me directly. I received a recommendation to contact the Gold Law Firm after a year of providing evidence and expecting coverage of my home damage after a water heater failure. I finally realized my only option was to hire a lawyer. I am very grateful that I found the best!

Cannot speak highly enough about the Gold Law Firm. My case was turned over to them when the original firm and the insurance firm reached an impasse. Michael took on the case and stuck with it until an additional settlement was reached. My children have a stress free start in life thanks to the efforts of the Gold Law Firm.
