ST. LOUIS COUNTY, Mo. ( -- A tractor trailer caught fire on Interstate 255 in south St. Louis County Wednesday, closing all westbound lanes for several hours.

The closure was close to Telegraph Road. 

All of the lanes were shut down until Wednesday’s rush hour, but one has re-opened. Drivers who take I-255 are urged to consider an alternate route. 

It is unclear at this point how the fire started or if there were any injuries, but officials told News 4 the truck was carrying chocolate.
