MOSSY, W.Va. -- The West Virginia Turnpike was briefly closed near the Mossy exit (mile marker 60) because a tractor-trailer caught fire early Friday morning.
At 7 a.m., all lanes were closed, a State Police trooper said. The truck was mostly on the shoulder of the southbound lanes. The northbound lanes were closed so firefighters could run hoses across them.
Traffic was moving slowly, with at least one lane open in both directions, by 7:30 a.m.
It wasn't clear if anyone was injured in the wreck. "It wasn't a wreck so much as the truck just caught fire," the trooper said.
