Tanker fire restricts travel on Clearfield Co. Interstate

No one injured after cab of truck catches fire

By: Marc Stempka

PINE TOWNSHIP, Pa. Traffic has been reduced to one lane on a busy Clearfield County interstate following a Tuesday morning truck fire.

Clearfield County emergency dispatch said a tractor-trailer caught fire at about 6:45 a.m. in the westbound lanes of I-80 in Pine Township. The fire and the resulting cleanup required both westbound lanes to be closed for about two hours.

PennDOT officials said as of 9:50 a.m. one lane had reopened to traffic in the area of the scene between milemarkers 116-114. Only the right lane of I-80 was closed to allow crews to continue to clean up the scene.

Officials expected the closed lane to be reopened by 6 p.m. Motorists were urged to watch for slow moving traffic in the area of the restrictions.

Officials said no injures were reported because of the fire.
