The Department of Transportation says highway 97 is open one way after a truck caught fire near Toppenish.

Fire investigators say a semi truck was destroyed. The driver saw smoke coming from his truck, and was able to get out in time. However, flames spread to a six-acre wildfire and temporarily shut down both lanes of highway 97 around 2 p.m. Thursday.
