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.
