MENOMONIE, Wis. (WEAU) - A semi fire on eastbound Interstate 94 is cleared after affecting traffic Wednesday afternoon.

According to the Wisconsin Dept. of Transportation, a semi fire initially blocked all lanes of traffic on Interstate 94 between Highway 25 and County Highway B north of Menomonie shortly after 2 p.m., which was then quickly revised to a right-lane closure only after seven minutes.

The incident was first added to 511wi.gov at 2:06 p.m., and then updated at 2:13 p.m. At 2:32 p.m., the incident was cleared.

The location of the fire was just north of the Menomonie Municipal Airport.
