Fire destroys big rig on I-45 in Madison County
A fire destroyed an 18-wheeler Thursday afternoon on I-45 in Madison County.
Video posted to the Madison County Sheriff's Office Facebook page shows firefighters extinguishing the flames that engulfed the semi's trailer.
A deputy said it's possible that an issue with the vehicle's brakes led to the fire. No serious injuries were reported and no other vehicles were involved.
The fire did shut down part of I-45 southbound between Madisonville and Huntsville as crews worked to clear the scene.
