GREAT FALLS — Emergency crews are at the scene of a semi trailer fire in Great Falls, which is causing some traffic delays.

It's happening along the Warden (10th Avenue South) Bridge, and Great Falls Fire Rescue said in a Facebook post just before 9 a.m.: "Please avoid west bound lane of warden bridge as firefighters are on scene of a semi trailer on fire."

Drivers are urged to avoid the area if possible in order to allow emergency crews to clear the scene.

There are no reports of any injuries; there is no word on the possible cause of the fire.

The Montana Department of Transportation said at 9:37 a.m. that the fire it out, and emergency crews are still at the scene, waiting for a tow truck to arrive.
