Highway 45 in Antigo now open after propane tanker fire

by

ANTIGO, Wis. (WSAU) -- Highway 45 in Antigo is open again this afternoon after a tanker truck caught fire.

The fire was reported around 2pm when a truck carrying propane caught fire. The driver attempted to put the flames out with a fire extinguisher but didn't make it before the flames spread to his tanker.

The flames spread and popped the tanker's safety seal, which kept the tanker from exploding but did send fire shooting over the trees.

Fire crews arrived and let the truck burn itself out before moving in to extinguish the rest of the vehicle.

The cause of the fire is still under investigation.
