Truck fire causes traffic delays on I-95 SB in Port Richmond

PORT RICHMOND (WPVI) -- A wildly-intense truck inferno on I-95 led to long traffic backups on the highway Wednesday night.

Fire trucks had to block some of the southbound lanes, just below Allegheny Avenue at 8 p.m.

Chopper 6 HD was overhead as the box truck was fully engulfed in flames.

Authorities have not said what, if any, cargo was inside the big rig, or what started the fire.
