ANITGO, Wis. — A busy highway in the Antigo area has reopened after an LP tanker truck caught fire.
The fire broke out around 11:40 a.m. Friday. Both lanes of Highway 45 south of Antigo were closed but have since reopened.
WSAW-TV (http://bit.ly/1hRKWAH) reports the driver made it out of the truck and was not hurt.
Because of the threat of an explosion, crews let the fire burn out, then came back to clean up. The highway sustained some damage.
Investigators are looking into what caused the fire.
