Nevada Highway Troopers closed part of Interstate 80 near Lovelock after part of a semi-truck trailer caught fire early Tuesday morning.

It happened near mile marker 94 about 10 miles west of Lovelock just before 5 a.m.

Troopers say the driver was heading east, when for unknown reason the trailer’s tires caught fire and exploded. The driver noticed, pulled over and disconnected the truck from the burning trailer.

No one was hurt in the incident.

One lane reopened to traffic. Nevada Department of Transportation representatives say they are waiting for a tow truck to haul away the trailer.
