Burning tractor-trailer closes southbound lanes of Interstate 77 in Yadkin County

YADKIN COUNTY, N.C. -- All southbound lanes of Interstate 77 in Yadkin County were closed after a tractor-trailer caught fire Monday morning.

The lanes have since reopened.

Trooper Moxley with the North Carolina Highway Patrol believes the brakes caught fire and caused the vehicle to burn.

The fire happened near mile marker 80 in Yadkin County but traffic backed up into Surry County.

The tractor-trailer was the only vehicle involved and no injuries were reported.
