BUFFALO, N.Y. (WIVB) — Crews rushed to respond to a fire on the I-90 Wednesday afternoon.

A tractor trailer caught fire around 3 p.m. and police say the driver was able to escape the blaze. New York State Troopers say the driver separated his truck from the trailer.

Smoke temporarily forced officials to close both lanes on the west bound I-90 between exits 48A and 49.

A fire company extinguished the flames just before 4 p.m., but traffic remained slow.
