TULSA, Oklahoma -

Fire destroyed a semi on Highway 75 in south Tulsa early Thursday.

The driver pulled over on the southbound shoulder of Highway 75, just north of the 71st Street exit. Police closed the outside lane of the highway for a short time which backed up traffic for miles.

Firefighters say the truck's cab was destroyed but the trailer sustained only minor damage.
