BLACK HAWK COUNTY (KWWL) -

A semi fire shut down traffic in both directions of Interstate 380 in Black Hawk County Sunday evening.

It happened around 8:15 p.m. in the northbound lane near the Raymond exit.

The fire was in a construction zone, so traffic was already reduced to one lane in either direction.

Drivers were detoured around the crash while crews put out the fire.

As of 3 a.m. Monday, Black Hawk County authorities said both lanes are clear, and traffic may resume as usual along that stretch of roadway.

Authorities said there were no reports of injuries.
