Semi-Truck Catches Fire On I-540
Thick smoke covered Interstate 540 a mile south of the Pleasant Grove exit northbound lanes around 4 a.m.
Rogers and Lowell firefighters closed I-540 while they put out the fire.
“The driver was very cooperative, he disconnected his heavy cargo, which helped us out a lot,” said Rogers Fire Chief Tom Jenkins.
It was a brake fire in the truck cab, Jenkins said.
State Police is investigating.
