One lane of westbound traffic on Interstate 70 in northeast Kansas has reopened after a semi-trailer fire closed that portion of the highway.

The Topeka Capital-Journal report that the section of highway in Wabaunsee and Riley counties was reopened to traffic Saturday morning after the fire was put out.

The fire was reported earlier Saturday at mile marker 318 in Riley County.

The Kansas Highway Patrol says no injuries were reported.

Interstate 70, both directions, between Salina and Topeka is a gauntlet. Younger people are still texting while traveling 75 to 80 mph and semi’s are all over the road wither because wind, phone/texting , or lack of sleep. We had several near accidents last Friday when we made a trip to Prairie Band and back. One almost needs to drive a tank when on I-70.
