AVONDALE, Ariz. – A semitruck caught fire on westbound Interstate 10 approaching 115th Avenue in Avondale Tuesday morning.

The semitrailer appeared to be transporting recycled cardboard.

Traffic had to move to the left to get by the scene.

Fire crews and the Department of Public Safety decided to move the truck onto the off-ramp so the I-10 could be cleaned up and the affected lanes opened.

There is no word as to what sparked the fire.

3TV's Bruce Haffner had a bird's-eye view.
