Billowing black smoke from a burning truck on I-90 could be seen for miles. The truck is the type that is sent out to help people in need by changing tires, but now it was in need of help. The back of the truck was fully involved when firefighters arrived. Construction on I-90 made it difficult for emergency crews to get to the fire but it looks like it was soon enough to save the cab of the truck. Traffic was shut down on I-90 and the backup was extensive.
