BOISE -- All lanes of Interstate-84 are back open this morning after a semitralier caught fire on I-84 in western Canyon County.

First person video and picture sent to the KTVB newsroom showed the truck's cab engulfed in flames.

Officials say the fire happened around 8 p.m. near the Canyon County line. Traffic was completely blocked from Exit 13 to Exit 17 for about an hour as rescuers extinguished the fire.

Canyon County dispatchers say no one was hurt in the fire. However, they did need help from New Plymouth and Parma to put the fire out and remove the truck from the freeway.
