A semitrailer caught fire this morning on southbound Interstate 15 causing two right lanes to be blocked just north of Sahara Avenue.
Nevada Highway Patrol received reports of the vehicle fire about 6:50 a.m. The semi was moved to the right shoulder while Las Vegas Fire & Rescue extinguished the flames, Trooper Loy Hixson said.
Fire trucks are blocking the right two lanes, but the lanes are expected to reopen once the firefighters leave, Hixson said.
No one was injured in the fire.
