Tractor Trailer Fire on Interstate 80

A tractor-trailer hauling shredded plastic for recycling went up in flames around Thrusday afternoon in Luzerne County.

The truck was traveling east on Interstate 80 in Sugarloaf Township, near the Nescopeck exit.

The driver noticed his brakes were on fire so he pulled over and got out of the truck. He detached the cab, and that's when the whole truck became engulfed.

To put the fire out firefighters had to dowse it with foam.

Traffic was detoured for about three hours while crews were cleaning up.

No one was hurt in the blaze.
