Northbound traffic down to one lane as tractor-trailer burns

— — No injuries were reported Friday after firefighters responded to a tractor-trailer fire at Exit 20 in the northbound lanes of Interstate 77.

“The whole front of the cab is on fire,” Bluefield Daily Telegraph reporter Anne Elgin said at the scene. Northbound traffic was being reduced to one lane.

The fire was reported to Mercer County 911 at approximately 6:42 p.m. Members of the Bluestone Valley Volunteer Fire Department soon extinguished the blaze.

The tractor-trailer was hauling riding mowers, according to Trooper First Class M.S. Horton of the West Virginia State Police Turnpike detachment.
