The box truck is a maintenance vehicle, carrying tools and equipment for the semitrailer that had broken down on the interstate at Dayton Yellow Springs Road.

The box truck driver tells us he approached to semitrailer to ask that driver about his rig's problem, and when he started to return to his box truck it was engulfed in flames. The semitrailer was not damaged.

Neither driver was injured in the fire reported about 4:30 p.m. 

Fairborn police and state highway patrol troopers shut down all the southbound lanes for several minutes. Northbound traffic was slowed because of rubbernecking.
