Sauk Rapids, MINN. (KNSI) - Highway 10 saw both Eastbound lanes shut down earlier today due to a fire with an 18-wheeler.

Authorities were called to the Eastbound lanes of the highway around 11:30 Friday afternoon, just North of Golden Spike Road. When they arrived on scene, the 18 wheeler was on the shoulder of the road and the cab was engulfed in flames. The fire nearly reached the fence in front of the Sauk Rapids water tower.

Firefighters were able to subdue the blaze and get all lanes of traffic re-opened in short order.
