<b><i>Up in flames...</b></i><br>
A 32-foot camp trailer is consumed by flames on state Route 128 on Saturday, Nov. 7. The camper caught fire while the truck that was towing it was traveling westbound on the highway. The driver had been alerted to the fire by another motorist on SR 128 and had manage to pull off the road and disconnect the trailer before it was fully ablaze, according to Grand County Sheriff’s Lt. Kim Neal. Firefighters were called to the scene at about 3:40 p.m. and completely extinguished the flames by about 4:40, Neal said. Moab resident Craig Carr witnessed the incident and said he was stopped  at a pullout between Fisher Towers and Moab when the truck towing the trailer passed by and Carr smelled burning rubber. As he was driving back to Moab Carr noticed something on fire in the roadway and realized it was probably a piece of burning tire that had come off the trailer. A few miles later he came upon the trailer burning by the roadside. Neal said no one was injured in the incident, however the trailer was a total loss. Photo by Craig K. Carr
