IOWA CITY (KWWL) -

Mormon Trek Boulevard in Iowa City had to be closed for more than an hour due to a trailer full of hay bales that caught on fire.

Firefighters were called to Mormon Trek Boulevard, near Rohret Road, at about 1:15 p.m. Wednesday.

Once on scene, firefighters found a trailer full of hay bales engulfed in flames.

The driver of the tractor was able to unhook from the trailer and helped crews spread out the bales so the fire could be put out.

Mormon Trek Boulevard was closed between Rohret Road and Cae Drive for about an hour and a half.

No one was injured.
