Part of Interstate 80 in Luzerne County was shut down by a truck fire early Wednesday.

The highway was shut down before 6:30 a.m. near the Luzerne County/Columbia line.

The cab of the truck was destroyed.

Both lanes of Interstate 80 westbound west of the Nescopeck exit (256) were closed for about an hour while crews cleared the mess.

Interstate 80 west is still down to one lane as crews clean up.
