Two lanes of westbound Interstate 80 were closed Friday morning as firefighters dealt with a burning truck and debris cleanup.

The semi caught fire just west of the Gretna Outlet Mall around 3:30 a.m. The driver was able to separate the cab from the burning trailer. He was not hurt.

No word on what sparked the flames. Cleanup continues so the Nebraska State Patrol is encouraging drivers to use Highway 6 instead.
