Portage la Prairie fire crews were called to the intersection of Highway 1 and Highway 16 on Thursday night as a semi-trailer was engulfed in flames.

The call came in just after 10:30 p.m. and four firefighters brought one truck to the scene. They dealt with the situation for approximately three hours. The semi-trailer was empty and nobody else was on scene, so no injuries were reported.

No other information is available at this time.
