A burning semi trailer briefly closed the southbound lanes of I-90 in Rock County Thursday evening.

As of 8 p.m., one lane along I-90 near Highway 59 is now back open after being closed for about 15 minutes.

State Patrol says no one was injured and that the trailer is likely at a total loss. Crews do not yet know what caused the fire.

State Patrol says the semi trailer was carrying cleaning materials, and are not considered hazardous materials.

Crews are now towing the semi trailer out of the remaining closed road.
