NEAR HUNTINGTON, OR - Huntington Fire Department personnel battled a semi-trailer fire in the westbound lanes of Interstate 84 about eight miles west of Huntington in eastern Oregon Wednesday night.

Around7:40 p.m. Wednesday, a commercial truck driver pulling a semi-trailer loaded with paper products was westbound on Interstate 84 near milepost 357 coming down Three Mile Hill when the trailer brakes caught fire. The driver stopped and disconnected the truck from the trailer to create separation, preventing the fire from spreading to the truck.

Both lanes were briefly closed and traffic is now moving past the scene in the left lane. ODOT and OSP are on scene assisting.
