Burned semi-truck cleared from I-94 after fire
KALAMAZOO COUNTY, Mich. (NEWSCHANNEL 3) - Emergency crews have cleaned up the scene of a semi-truck fire overnight, just in time for the morning commute.
But that fire had the highway shut down for hours overnight.
It happened in the eastbound lanes of I-94 near the 84 Mile Marker.
Deputies had to close the eastbound lanes completely for about 40 minutes, but even after that, the highway was down to just one lane.
Right now, investigators say it looks like the fire started in the truck's rear brakes.
The cargo in that truck was cheese.
The driver was able to make it out safely.
