Thursday, Oct. 17, Interstate 84 at Mile Marker 108 was closed after a double tanker fuel truck burst into flames.  According to the Utah High Patrol, the west-bound tanker rolled Thursday morning.  Its rear tank rolled and caught fire, while the front tanker and cab remained unturned.  While emergency crews supervised, the rear tanker’s fuel was allowed to completely burn off.  Speed may have been a factor in the accident, according to the UHP.  No major injuries related to the accident were reported, but both west and east bound lanes were closed for hours.
