BURLEY — Idaho State Police responded to a two-trailer semi-truck fire on Interstate-84 on Sunday, Sept. 27.

The semi was carrying a load of baled straw. It was the second straw truck fire to occur in east Idaho this month.

ISP Dispatchers report the truck’s engine caught fire at about 3:15 p.m near milepost 208. The driver pulled off the road and was able to exit the vehicle.

Emergency responders from Cassia and Minidoka counties, Burley and Heyburn also responded to the fire.

No one was injured. The cab of the semi was destroyed, as was the hay on the first trailer.
