KANSAS CITY, Mo. — A truck driver captured video Thursday afternoon of another tractor-trailer that caught fire along Interstate 49 in Grandview.

Around 2 p.m., emergency crews were forced to close two lanes of northbound I-49 at Main Street in Grandview after a rear set of wheels on a tractor-trailer burst into flames.

While fire crews were able to extinguish the fire, the Missouri Department of Transportation said that crews would remain on the scene to unload tons of soda being hauled by the trailer.

No injuries were reported.
