MADISON, Wis. (WMTV) - Drivers heading south on I-39/90/94 ran into major delays near the Hwy. 60 interchange in Columbia Co.

The Wisconsin State Patrol reported multiple times Thursday that vehicles were backed up for more than four miles because of the wreck.

Earlier, the agency reported that a semi trailer caught fire following a crash about 9:30 a.m. Pictures released from the scene showed the fire had eaten a significant chunk out of the front end of the trailer on the driver’s side, spilling some of its cargo onto the ground.

No injuries were reported in the wreck, WSP noted.

The highway reopened around 3:30 p.m., the agency stated.
