MIAMITOWN, OH (FOX19) -

A semi-truck caught fire twice on Tuesday on two different Tri-state highways.

The truck first caught fire Tuesday morning at mile marker 128 near the Miamitown exit. The fire was quickly extinguished.

Two lanes were closed for almost an hour as crews cleared the scene. All lanes have since been re-opened and the truck was towed away.

The same truck caught fire again around noon on eastbound I-275. The truck reportedly caught fire near the 29 mile marker, once again slowing traffic flow.

FOX19 will continue to update the story as details become available.
