A wild sight Friday morning on I-25 as people had pull over due to thick smoke covering all lanes of travel north of Walsenburg.

A viewer named Mike shared video with us as a truck carrying fireworks burned just off the road. In the video, you can hear all of the fireworks popping off.

Everyone had to stop due to low visibility. There's no word yet on what caused the fire or the extent of damages.

The Colorado Department of Transportation reported fire crews had to deal with the truck and a small brush fire at mile marker 44.
