Semi fire blocks traffic on Marshall County interstate

A tractor-trailer fire shut down one lane of a Marshall County interstate on Wednesday afternoon.

Eastbound traffic on I-24 was restricted to one-lane near Exit 27 between Calvert City and Kentucky Dam when a semi caught fire.

The Gilbertsville Fire Department responded to the scene where they found the tires completely burned off the tractor-trailer, which had to be removed before the interstate could reopen.

No injuries were reported.
