Nebraska State Patrol Trooper Carolyn O'Brien believes the brakes on the semi trailer got too hot and started the fire. The fire then destroyed the semi trailer.

Rescue crews were able to detach the semi from the load and save it. The load of onions was destroyed. Nobody was hurt in the accident.

Troopers had to divert traffic as they put out the flames. Traffic sent to highway 30 through Hershey.
