CARDWELL - A vehicle accident was reported by Jefferson County Sheriffs office and the Montana Highway Patrol on I-90 eastbound just past the Cardwell Hill near the Milligan Canyon exit on mile marker 264 shortly after 2 pm Wednesday afternoon.

No report of injuries but it appears a vehicle caught fire and is a total loss. This also caught the grass on fire and is burning in grass and sage near the Milligan Canyon exit.

Details are limited at this time and we are working on this story for the 5:30 pm news on KXLF and KBZK.
