No one was hurt when a tractor-trailer carrying paper goods caught fire on Interstate 84 in Danbury early Monday.
Danbury fire officials said it happened on I-84 westbound between exits 5 and 6 around 3 a.m. The driver had disconnected the trailer from the tractor before crews arrived, and firefighters were able to quickly put out the fire.
The cause of the fire is under investigation.
There were lane closures in the area while crews worked, but the highway has seen reopened.
Fire officials asked that drivers remember to move over and slow for emergency vehicles during a response – it is the law in Connecticut. Emergency vehicles include law enforcement, fire vehicles, ambulances, highway maintenance crews and licensed wreckers and tow trucks.
