RICHMOND, Vt. (WCAX) - Fire tore through a box truck on I-89 Sunday afternoon, closing southbound lanes in Richmond.

Police say it happened around 9:30 a.m. Flames engulfed the white box truck carrying Amazon products off Exit 11.

The fire shut down southbound lanes for several hours as Richmond firefighters and Vermont State Police worked to get it under control.

Once crews extinguished the fire, not much of the truck was left. They say cleanup took a while because the truck melted to the road.

No one was hurt. Police say the cause of the fire is unclear.
