A semi-truck caught on fire on the Tri-State Tollway in the western suburbs Wednesday night, closing down three of the five lanes, police said.
About 8:52 p.m., the semi caught fire in the southbound lanes of I-294 at Ogden in Hinsdale, according to a statement from Illinois State Police. Within an hour, the vehicle was “fully engulfed in flames.”
Three of the tollway’s five lanes remained closed as of 10 p.m., police said.
The ramp from southbound I-294 onto westbound Ogden is also closed as emergency crews work to extinguish the fire, police said.
No one was injured.
