Truck fire closes I-75 in Hancock County

RAWSON, Ohio - A tractor-trailer rig caught fire last night on I-75 under the Hancock County Road 12 overpass about a mile south of here, temporarily closing the southbound lanes of the interstate. There were no reported injuries, authorities said.

The incident occurred about 7:30 p.m. when the semi, which was southbound on the interstate, developed a mechanical problem, the Ohio Highway Patrol said.

Area fire crews extinguished the blaze sometime before 8:30 p.m., by which time one southbound lane was opened to traffic, a dispatcher at the patrol's Findlay post said.
