Diesel tanks erupt in flames on I-94

Diesel tanks may have caught fire

KENOSHA COUNTY -- A fireball along southbound I-94 Wednesday night near state highway 142.

It was around 8 p.m. when a disabled truck hauling sand was alongside the southbound lanes.  The Wisconsin Department of Transportation says it appears that the diesel tanks erupted in flames although it's unclear why.

Video from the scene appears to show two figures heading towards the flame. We assume they are emergency responders since the flames are out soon after followed by a huge plume of smoke.

So far no word on injuries.
