Truck fire snarls traffic

A truck fire snarled traffic on U.S. 23 just south of Pikeville Tuesday. The truck caught fire on the north side of Foggy Mountain in the northbound lane. Traffic was blocked for nearly a half hour while Shelby Valley volunteer firefighters responded. Kentucky State Police Trooper Colt Stumbo said the driver of the truck was not injured in the incident. The roadway was reopened shortly after the fire was extinguished.
