I-78 near Hamburg closed in both directions due to truck fire

A portion of I-78 in Berks County is closed in both directions following a truck fire.

The blaze started early Monday morning near Route 61 just outside Hamburg.

Officials say a 30-year-old driver lost control of his vehicle, crashing into the center median and bursting into flames. No injuries have been reported.

FOX 29's Bob Kelly advises drivers to use Route 222 as an alternative.
