EVANSVILLE, IN (WFIE) - A semi fire shut down a section of Highway 41 in Evansville Thursday morning.

It happened on the southbound lanes of 41 at Virginia Street around 6:45.

Firefighters say the inside tired caught on fire. That burnt a hole in the tractor and caused it to spill grain on the road.

Crews were able to clean up the mess within an hour.

We're told the driver of the semi is okay.
