Murfreesboro Fire & Rescue Department’s District 9 and Engine 15 responded to a tractor trailer on fire in the westbound lane of I-24 at Exit 76 (Medical Center Parkway) just before 9:00 Saturday night.
The driver of the Trans Freight, Inc. truck, was able to unhook the trailer and drive the tractor a safe distance away before responders arrived on scene.
When crews arrived, the trailer, full of food products, was engulfed in flames. Crews pulled a line and extinguished the fire quickly.
No one was injured during the incident.
The cause of the fire is unknown at this time. More information will be released as it becomes available.
