LAS VEGAS (KLAS) — After a complete closure for more than three hours, the I-11 between Nevada and Arizona is now fully open to traffic.
Nevada State Police said the closure began before 4 a.m. because of a fire involving a semi-trailer truck on I-11 between Boulder City and Hoover Dam.
Troopers said the semi-truck got a flat tire which led to the trailer catching fire and resulted in both sides of the freeway being closed.
The closure caused some major backups for traffic heading into the Las Vegas valley.
There are no reports of injuries.
