DURHAM, NC (WNCN) — A truck was on fire on the interstate in Durham on Thursday afternoon and the road will be closed until about 8 pm, officials say.
As of 3:10 p.m., a garbage truck was burning along I-85 and NC 147, which is where the Durham Freeway intersects with I-85.
The DOT said a ramp is closed at mile marker 172 and on maps it appears the ramp is the connector between I-85 and the Durham Freeway.
There were several firefighters on the scene.
“There are no injuries. The highway is expected to be closed for at least two hours,” Durham officials said just before 6 pm.
