Vehicle Fire Closes Interstate

Posted: Updated:

I-94 westbound was closed for about an hour and a half when a truck started fire three miles west of the Sterling exit.

At about 12:35 p.m., a Frito Lay truck caught on fire due to a hot bearing on the axle of the truck.

Driver Ronald Surprise was traveling on I-94 near mile marker 180 when he noticed smoke coming from the trailer. He stopped, but could not to put out the fire. Surprise was able to unhook the Volvo tractor from the trailer.

The trailer was completely engulfed in flames and was a total loss.

Traffic was diverted at the Sterling exit to Old Highway 10 while firefighters worked to contain the fire.

One firefighter was taken to St. Alexius due to smoke inhalation.
