Colorado State Patrol has opened all lanes of I-70 after the road was closed at milemarker 37.

State Patrol dispatch says both the eastbound lanes were closed due to smoke drifting over the lanes. Traffic was diverted along US 6.

Initial reports indicate it was a vehicle on a blown out tire and its rim that sparked the 400 yard blaze that started just west of the Palisade exit.
