A truck-tractor went up in flames Thursday afternoon on state Highway 14 eastbound in Vancouver.
The fire was reported at 12:20 p.m., just east of the exit ramp to East Evergreen Boulevard. The driver of the truck-tractor pulled to the right shoulder and got his belongings out of the vehicle before it was consumed by fire, said Washington State Patrol Trooper Will Finn.
Vancouver firefighters doused the flames, but the vehicle was considered a total loss, Finn said. The right lane of the highway was blocked for about 40 minutes.
