A semi was engulfed in flames after a crash along I-80 near Atlantic, Iowa.

The tractor trailer was exiting the interstate at mile marker 64 when the driver's front tire blew, causing the semi to lose control.

The vehicle then crashed into a concrete bridge barrier and caught fire.

The semi and trailer were destroyed, but neither of the two occupants were injured.

I-80 was closed and traffic was re-routed for part of the morning, but it has since re-opened.
