Earlier at this time (August 20th, 2020), a fireplace compelled the Wyoming Division of Transportation to shut Interstate 25 between Cheyenne and the Colorado state line. I-25 has since been reopened for each instructions of freeway visitors.
Cheyenne resident Carlos Gonzalez captured some horrifying footage of the blaze whereas driving by means of it. Gonzalez posted the brief, 8-second video to his Fb web page together with a caption that learn:
Driving to Cheyenne from Fort Collins.. on the freeway to hell apparently.
Within the three hours since Gonzalez initially posted it, the video has already been shared over 3000 occasions.
As you possibly can simply see from the video, it is actually no secret why WYDOT made the choice to shut the freeway. If the smoke wasn’t dangerous sufficient by itself, I am fairly certain the warmth from the hearth and the wind spreading it was making driving circumstances very unsafe.
