(KMOV) – Several lanes were closed on Interstate 44 after a semi-truck was involved in a rollover wreck in St. Louis County Wednesday morning.

Authorities said the incident happened on the interstate near the Pacific exit around 4:30 a.m.

A fuel leak forced authorities to close all but one westbound lane as crews worked to clear the scene. The exit ramp was also closed.

Officials said a small fire started after a tow truck tried to move the tractor-trailer, but it was quickly extinguished.

No injuries were reported.

The cause of the wreck was not immediately known.
