A fire in a semi trailer closed the right lane of I-94 early Wednesday morning in Jackson County. According to the Wisconsin State Patrol, troopers were called to a semi fire at 1:30 a.m. just east of Hixton. When the trooper arrived, the driver of the semi had been able to separate the tractor from the trailer, which was loaded with soda cans and fully engulfed in flames on the right shoulder. Fire crews were able to get the fire extinguished within half an hour, but the right lane remains closed while crews work to remove the damaged trailer.
