FARMINGTON — Members of the fire department were called to I-15 Monday night when a blown tire on a semi truck with three trailers burst into flames.
The 9 p.m. Monday incident occurred on the northbound highway near Shepard Lane.

He said traffic likely was impeded at first until emergency workers got control of the flames.
