Northbound Interstate 35 has been shut down to two lanes near the intersection with Koenig Lane while firefighters respond to reports on 18-wheeler on fire, police officials said Friday evening.

A semi-truck’s engine caught fire on the 10800 block of North I-35 around 7:37 p.m., Austin police said. One lane of the highway and one lane of the frontage road have been shut down while firefighters put out the fire, officials said.

Officials estimate the closures should remain for at least another hour.
