Car hauled on semi catches fire on I-90 near Dover
DOVER — A semi tractor-trailer hauling cars caught fire early this morning on Interstate 90.
Fire personnel from Dover, St. Charles and Eyota responded to a call at about 6:21 a.m. about half way between the Dover and St. Charles exits on I-90. according to Sgt. Troy Christianson, a spokesman with the Minnesota State Patrol.
The semi, which was eastbound on I-90, was hauling several cars, one of which caught fire due to the brakes on the trailer as the semi was traveling down the road, Christianson said. The semi itself did not catch fire, and no one was injured in the incident.
The incident closed eastbound traffic on I-90 for a short time while fire crews put out the blaze and secured the scene.
