DENVER, Colo. (FOX 10) -- Crews in Colorado are battling a huge fire that is burning on the roadway of I-70 in the Denver area.

According to Denver FOX affiliate KDVR, the fire involves several vehicles in the Lakewood area, located west of Downtown Denver, and Colorado Department of Transportation officials say I-70 is closed in both directions, due to safety concerns. Two people were hurt as a result, according to fire officials in the area, and they believe everyone was able to escape from their vehicles.

This was not the only major incident along the I-70 in the Denver area on Thursday. Earlier in the day, FOX affiliate KDVR reported on a crash involving a school bus and a semi-trailer. The crash happened about three miles north of this incident.
