Tractor Trailer Fire Causes Traffic Backup on I-64


April 5, 2013

A tractor trailer caught fire halfway up Afton Mountian on Interstate 64 on Friday afternoon.

Police stopped all traffic heading westbound for about an hour.

The driver told police, he noticed the truck was overhearing, pulled over, and then the flames started.

Nobody was hurt, and all lanes have since been reopened to traffic.
