AIKEN COUNTY, SC (WIS) - Interstate 20 is back open after a semi on fire shut down both lanes for a brief time on Sunday.

The South Carolina Department of Public Safety had to reroute traffic for several miles as they cleared the scene.

Troopers say a semi carrying ammonia nitrate was traveling when the brakes got too hot and caught fire.

A hazardous material crew was called out as a precaution but was not needed.

No injuries were reported.
