      Traffic Alert: Turner Turnpike lane closed due to semi fire

      8:15 Update: The right lane of eastbound Turner Turnpike near Luther remains closed as crews use a bobcat to pick up the burned boxes of pistachios and almonds and load them into a dump truck.

      The semi tractor trailer caught fire just after 2:00 a.m. near Hiwassee Road. OHP troopers say the semi driver was not injured.

      No word on when the roadway will be re-opened.
