CHAMPAIGN, Ill. (WCIA) — A semi fire forced part of I-74 to close Wednesday night. One of the westbound lanes were closed between the Neil Street and Lincoln Avenue exits.

Cars were backed up for about a mile. Police moved drivers over to the shoulder of the interstate so the semi could be towed away. Two two trucks were called to the scene to take away the cab and the trailer.

No word on if anyone was hurt or what caused the fire.
