Traffic was stopped on westbound Interstate 80 near Atalissa, Iowa, Tuesday morning after a semi-tractor fire.
The incident began shortly after 6:30 a.m. when a westbound semi pulled over to the right shoulder because of a tire fire. The fire was big enough to be a hazard to westbound traffic.
Both westbound lanes were shut down for a short time until firefighters were able to extinguish the fire.
One westbound lane was reopened until the scene was cleaned up. Both lanes were reopened about 7:30 a.m.
No injuries were reported.
The Iowa State Patrol was assisted by area firefighters, the Cedar County Sheriff's Department and the Iowa Department of Transportation.
