Semi Cab Fire on I-57 Confined to Tire

June 4, 2017

A fire was confined to a tire on a semi truck cab on Interstate 57 eight miles north of Salem Friday morning.

Kinmundy-Alma Assistant Fire Chief Richard Day says when the truck driver realized the tire was on fire, he unhooked the trailer to prevent any damage to it. Firemen were able to confine the fire to just the tire. The driver, whose name was not immediately available, was not injured.

The fire occurred in the southbound lanes at mile marker 124.

The call came in at 9:24 Friday morning. Firemen were on the scene for just under an hour.
