LEXINGTON, Ky. (WKYT) - A fire to a tractor-trailer on Interstate 64 in Lexington is causing significant traffic delays.

The semi is in the westbound lanes near the I-75/I-64 southern split.

The driver was headed from Winchester to Cincinnati to pick up a load of mulch when he heard a loud pop. Moments later the cab was on fire.

Both westbound lanes toward Frankfort are blocked. Traffic is moving on the shoulder. One northbound lane toward Cincinnati is also blocked. Officials estimate the lane closures could last until 10 a.m.
