MILWAUKEE - A truck fire has led to the shutdown of a ramp in Milwaukee's busiest interchange during the Wednesday morning rush hour.

Newsradio 620 WTMJ Time Saver Traffic reporter Andi Miller says the fire happened just before 7:00 a.m. on the ramp from eastbound I-94 to northbound I-43, just before the Kilbourn tunnel.

The fire was extinguished by 7:20 a.m., but smoke continued to rise throughout the morning.

There was no initial word on how long it would take to clean up the scene, or if there were any injuries.
