Local News

CHARLESTON, Utah (ABC4 News) – Cleanup is underway at Deer Creek Reservoir Tuesday after troopers said a semi hauling butane rolled into the reservoir.

It happened around 11:15 a.m. on SR 189 at mile marker 25.

The road was closed for a while, then crews began to allow drivers to pass through by alternating north and southbound traffic. 

Troopers later announced a “hard closure” of SR-180 between SR-113 and Wallsburg that began at 3:30 p.m., and would last “well into the evening.” Officials did not have an estimate of when the road would reopen. 

Troopers called it a “delicate clean-up situation.”

This is a developing story. Updates will be posted as more information becomes available.
