The load on two tractor trailers traveling southbound on Interstate 77 near Athens caught on fire Thursday afternoon.
Both tractor trailers appear to be carrying paper or cardboard, according to a Daily Telegraph photographer on the scene of the fire. The first fire was reported around 3 p.m. on Exit 14 of I-77.
A small section of grass leading up to a bank also has caught on fire. Firefighters are on scene, and working to extinguish the blaze.
Traffic is still moving southbound on I-77 southbound despite the fire.
