UPDATE: Semi-Truck fire closes lane on I-39 in Marathon County

Posted:

Transportation officials say the right lane of Interstate 39 south is closed because of a semi-truck that caught fire.

Our reporter at the scene says the fire is out. Both lanes of the highway are now re-opened.

Authorities at the scene say after an initial investigation, it looks like the bearings near one of the truck's tires caught fire.
