A semi fire on northbound I-65 this morning shutdown all lanes of traffic so crews could extinguish the blaze. Indiana State Police Lowell Post report just after 7:30am, a semi pulling a box trailer was heading north near the Ridge Road exit, when the driver noticed smoke coming from his exhaust stacks, and shortly thereafter, the semi tractor began to burn, and then became fully engulfed. Authorities report the driver of the semi was not injured, but his box trailer loaded with canned food sustained smoke damage. State Police say all northbound lanes of I-65 were reopened just after 9am.
