Early morning semi fire snarls traffic near Peru

Posted by wlpo on January 11, 2016

It’s awfully cold to be out fighting a fire but that’s what happened to Ladd firefighters.

A 9-1-1 call came out around 5 Monday morning for a semi fire on westbound Interstate 80 west of Peru near the Plank Road exit. For over an hour, traffic was being slowed and even diverted as the semi was towed away and state crews had a chance to salt the lanes where the fire happened.

Nobody was injured.
