(Sunman, Ind.) - A truck fire has I-74 Eastbound down to one lane at the Sunman exit Thursday morning.

The semi truck caught fire in the eastbound lanes near the Dearborn-Ripley County line. Indiana State Police were diverting traffic off of I-74 Eastbound at Sunman onto State Road 46, but one lane of the interstate opened at around 6;00 a.m.

It is unclear what the semi was hauling or if anybody was hurt in the fire.
