What’s the latest I-80 mishap between Utica and Ottawa?  A semi trailer  was destroyed by fire after 11pm Saturday on eastbound I-80 half-way between Utica and Ottawa. Utica Assistant Fire Chief Mark Bierbom said personnel from Utica and Wallace Departments – along with State Police – were at the scene.

Bierbom said the tractor was detached from the burning trailer and was not damaged.  It is thought the driver’s rig might have had Quebec plates. Traffic was routed off at Utica and utilized Route 6 for a time.
