INDIANAPOLIS (WTHR) - A semi truck fire on 465 slowed traffic for several hours on Friday.

The fire happened in the south bound lanes of 465 near I-70 on the east side.

The truck driver was able to separate the cab from the trailer that was on fire.

The driver of the semi says a tire blew, became caught in the rear-axle and then caught on fire.

The United States Postal Service says the truck was a contractor hauling mail.
