Sunday afternoon around 4:25 a fire was reported near Clinton. Traffic seemed concerned as the contents and details of the fire were unknown. We alerted folks on our social media that there could be some delays in this area. Some people brought up good points and those who work in the industry provided some insight.

Thanks to NBC Montana we know the tankers were oil tankers but thankfully empty. They are not sure of the cause at this time according to firefighters at the scene and the report from NBC Montana. There were "15 foot flames out of the smoke stack".
