A bizarre fire on Interstate 35 in Temple backed up traffic for miles late Tuesday afternoon.
It happened around 1:00 in Temple at the Midway exit.
Officials say a burning trailer carrying bales of hay came loose from a truck and stopped in the middle of the freeway.
The incident spawned several minor accidents. Crews blocked off the area so firefighters could put out the fire.
Firefighters aren’t sure how the fire started.
