A vehicle fire on Interstate 80 caused traffic to back up Thursday morning.

First responders were called to the fire at mile marker 413 near Waverly around 4:30 a.m.

Nebraska 511 tweeted that I-80 westbound at MM420 was closed due to a semi fire, but both lanes have now been reopened.

He then noticed the fire and disconnected the trailer.
