DUBUQUE (KWWL) -

A semi-tractor trailer engulfed in flames closed a lane of traffic on Kerper Boulevard in Dubuque around 5:30 this evening.

Those with the Dubuque Fire Department tell us the driver was hauling oranges, which likely are inedible because of heavy smoke damage. They also say that the driver was actually on the way to a repair shop when he the engine started on fire. He made it out okay, but his cab was destroyed.
