About 10:15 a.m., the tractor-trailer was reported on fire on the side of the road near the 105 mile marker.

Perry Fire Rescue responded to the scene and the highway — in a single-lane construction zone — was closed for several hours while firefighters extinguished the fire and had the vehicle towed.

The cause and whether there were any injuries is unknown.
