(Las Vegas, NV)  — State transportation officials plan to repair damage from a fuel tank explosion along southbound I-15 between Lake Mead and Owens.  N-DOT says some lanes of the freeway will close overnight next week for permanent repairs.  It will cost up to 150-thousand dollars, but the trucking company involved in the crash will get the bill.  Authorities say the tanker carrying
91-hundred gallons of fuel rolled over and burst into flames early yesterday morning, shutting down a portion of the freeway for nearly eleven hours.  The driver was not hurt.
