PITTSTON TOWNSHIP — Police say a burning tractor trailer shut down part of Route 315 in Luzerne County Tuesday morning.

Authorities tell us the brakes of the big rig caught fire which then spread to the wood the truck was hauling.

The driver managed to pull over and get out safely.

Both directions of the road were shut down while crews cleaned up.

Newswatch 16 will have updates when all roads are re-opened.
