LEXINGTON, Ky. (WKYT) - The inbound lanes of Versailles Road were shutdown Monday evening after a semi-truck caught fire.

Around 6:00 p.m. Monday evening, a flat tire on the semi-truck caused other mechanical issues. The back end of the trailer then caught on fire, but no one was injured.

Crews were able to separate the cab from the trailer, that contained consumable goods such as cookies and crackers.

Drivers were diverted to Parkers Mill until roads eventually reopened.
