Tractor trailer fire shuts down I-95 North


ATTLEBORO, Mass. (WPRI) – A tractor trailer fire kept I-95 north shut down for part of the Friday morning commute.

The fire started just after 5 a.m. Friday morning when a tractor trailer crashed just south of exit 5.

Drivers on I-95 and I-295 were advised to seek alternate routes as traffic on the highway increased before the morning rush hour. Heavy delays were being experienced as far back at exit 2.

All lanes were reopened by 8 a.m. The cause of the crash is unknown at this time.
