Members of Deer Springs Fire Protection District douse a car carrier that caught on fire at the Gopher Canyon Road exit on Northbound Interstate 15 early Monday evening. Several of the new vehicles being transported were damaged by the fire which is believed to have started in a faulty axle, Capt. Terry Heidman told the Roadrunner in a phone interview. "The driver said he saw smoke coming from the rear axle so he pulled onto the shoulder," said Heidman. "By the time he got out of the vehicle and checked one of the cars was already on fire."
