MERRILL, Wis. (WSAU) -- Highway 51 between Brokaw and Merrill had plenty of weekend excitement.

Friday’s bad weather led to several slide offs, backing up traffic for about four miles in the northbound lane north of Brokaw.

On Saturday, a vehicle caught fire near the Merrill Highway 64 & 17 exit. Lincoln County deputies say the fire started in the engine compartment of the pickup truck just before 4 o’clock in the afternoon. The 17-year-old driver from Merrill was alone, and able to safely escape. The truck was a total loss.

The truck fire backed traffic up about four miles in the northbound lanes
