A truck fire caused traffic delays on Interstate 481 in DeWitt Wednesday morning.

Onondaga County 911 says a dump truck fire was reported just before 8:00 a.m. on I-481 south near the Route 298 exit (exit 7). The State DOT closed a portion of I-481 in that area while fire and police crews cleared the scene.

CNY Central viewer Gavin Snyder sent in the attached photo, which shows a Hoffy dump truck on fire before firefighters arrived. Hoffy is a logging and excavating company based in Altmar, Oswego County.

No word yet on the cause of the fire, or if there were any injuries.
