MIDDLEBURY, Conn. (WTNH) — A tractor trailer fire closed lanes and slowed down the morning commute for drivers in the Southbury/Middlebury area Friday morning.

The crash happened in the eastbound lanes of I-84 between exits 16-17. A Report It Picture submitted by Paul shows the cab of a truck engulfed in flames.

Two lanes of the highway were closed for a time, but as this hour only one lane is closed.

We don’t know yet what caused the fire, or if the driver suffered any injuries.
