MARSHALL, Mich. (NEWSCHANNEL 3) - A semi-truck driver was injured Tuesday morning when his semi burst into flames.

Aden goes on to say the truck was broken down on the ramp and when the driver tried to get it started it caught fire.
The I-94 off ramp at Mile Marker 110 was shut down for several hours while crews cleaned up hot spots.
