The Kenosha County Sheriff’s Department is investigating a semi-trailer fire in the 2500 block of Interstate 94 southbound. We have no reported injuries.

Today at approximately 3:30 a.m. Kenosha County Sheriff Deputies and the Village of Somers Fire Department responded to the above location for a report of a semi-trailer on fire. All southbound lanes of traffic were closed at Highway 11 in Racine County, and traffic was re-directed. At approximately 5:35 a.m. two lanes of traffic were opened up.

The semi-trailer was reported to be transporting produce and no hazardous material. Part of the semi-trailer appears to have melted to the roadway complicating its removal and clean-up of the scene.

The Wisconsin State Patrol, Racine County Sheriff’s Office, as well as Fire and Rescue personnel from the City of Kenosha, Village of Pleasant Prairie, and South Shore Fire Department, responded to assist at the scene. The cause of the fire remains under investigation at this time. The Kenosha County Sheriff’s Department thanks motorists for their patience and would like to remind drivers to drive safely.
