OHP: Semi carrying hay catches fire, closes Woodward County highway


A semi fire has closed a highway in western Oklahoma Wednesday morning.

Oklahoma Highway Patrol officials say the southbound lane of US 183 is blocked after a semi pulling a load of hay catches fire.

The fire began around 5:30 a.m. about four miles northwest of Woodward.

It's unclear if there are any injuries involved at this time, or how long the road will be shut down.
