Idaho State Police say there were no injuries after a semi-trailer erupted into flames early Thursday morning.

Authorities say the trailer was traveling near milepost 162 along Interstate 84 near the Jerome and Gooding county line just after 1 a.m. when the driver noticed one of the trailers was on fire.

The Oak Harbor Freight trailer was severely damaged by flames. The driver stopped along the freeway and was able to unhook the burning trailer from the semi and move it. Police say the Gooding Fire Department responded and doused the flames.
