The fire caused some backups with lane closures as crews cleared the scene. 

Houchen said the driver of the truck was able to get out safely and no one else was hurt. A passing driver alerted the truck driver of the smoke, and he pulled over just before the truck caught fire and became fully engulfed, Huls said.
