MADISON COUNTY, Fla. (WCTV) -- Madison County Fire Rescue says a tractor-trailer hauling at least a dozen motorcycles went up in flames along Interstate 10 on Thursday.

MCFR says it happened just after 11 a.m. near mile marker 262 in Madison County.

Officials say it started when the trailer experienced a tire blowout and the driver attempted to make it to the next exit before stopping. Another driver reportedly flagged down the driver upon seeing flames coming from the trailer.

The Florida Highway Patrol and MCFR responded to the scene.

No injuries were reported.

MCFR says the tractor-trailer and the motorcycles it was hauling sustained damage in the fire.
