THOMPSON – Interstate 395 North was closed for much of Friday after a tractor-trailer carrying Heineken beer burst into flames.
The fire extinguished quickly and no one was hurt, but glass beer bottles needed to be removed from the highway.
I-395 North was closed between exits 50 and 53 from 9:30 a.m. through 5:00 p.m.
Fire departments from Connecticut and Massachusetts, as well as Connecticut State Police responded.
It’s still unclear how the fire started.
