Cars Catch On Fire On Highway 287

Highway 287 is back open Friday afternoon after a semi-truck blowout started a fire and closed off the road.

A little after 6:00 a.m.  a semi-truck carrying nine vehicles blew a tire. This led to two vehicles being towed catching fire.

Wichita Falls Firefighters were able to get the blaze under control but both vehicles were completely destroyed.

Wichita Falls Police closed off a westbound lane from Huntington Lane to FM 369 as fire crews worked to clean up the mess.

No injuries have been reported.
