COLUMBIA, Mo. (KMIZ)
A trailer fire shut down part of eastbound Interstate 70 in Columbia on Friday morning.
The fire near the Range Line Street exit caused emergency crews to shut down the highway at about 10 a.m. On-ramps from Providence Road and Range Lane were also shut down, according to emergency alerts from county dispatchers.
It wasn't immediately clear what caused the fire and the trailer appeared to be detached from the truck that was pulling it. The Missouri Department of Transportation's online traveler map says the shutdown could last until about 11 a.m.

One lane of traffic reopened a little after 10:30 a.m. MoDOT said in a tweet a little before 11 a.m. that traffic was backed up to the Midway exit.
The cause of the fire is still unknown, Columbia Fire Department Capt. Jeffrey Coffman said. There was no crash involved and no one was hurt, he said.
