RICHLAND, Wash.- A truck hauling dumpsters went up in flames Thursday morning, completely stopping westbound traffic on Highway 240 in Richland.

Drivers were stuck for twenty minutes just east of Duportail Street while firefighters put out the blaze.

Investigators say the fire appears to have started near the engine and spread throughout the cab. No one was hurt.
