NEWTON TWP., Ohio (WKBN) – Traffic was backed up for about four miles on the Ohio Turnpike Thursday afternoon due to a semi truck fire around mile marker 212.
The driver was heading westbound between the Lordstown and Warren exits when he noticed smoke in his rear-view mirror.
He pulled off to the side of the road and when he got out, he found the back of his truck on fire.
Firefighters used a foam to help put out the fire.
The semi-truck was carrying boxes of almond milk.
