One lane blocked as incident cleared

A semitrailer on fire stopped on the northbound Interstate 5 overcrossing at Crowson Road on the southeast corner of Ashland before 8 a.m. Monday morning. A witness said the rear tires on both the tractor and the trailer were on fire, but both fires were quickly extinguished by firefighters. Traffic was limited to one lane most of the morning as the incident was cleared. (The photographer declined to be identified.)
