Flames from semi temporarily close parts of I-94 in Fargo
FARGO, N.D. (KFYR) – The North Dakota Highway Patrol says flames from a burning semi-truck stretched across both westbound lanes of I-94 early Friday morning, temporarily blocking travel.
Troopers say a semi-trailer lost lights and its electrical stopped working while traveling west on I-94 near West Fargo before 5:30 a.m.
The driver, a 30-year-old man from Fargo, pulled off on the shoulder and noticed heavy smoke coming from the engine compartment. The man attempted to put the fire out with a fire extinguisher but was unsuccessful.
I-94 was closed for about 30 minutes as the north wind was pushing the flames across both westbound lanes of the interstate.
