RELIANCE -- A semi truck lost its drive shaft and eventually caught fire Thursday on Interstate 90 near mile marker 243, east of Reliance.

Lyman County Sheriff Steve Manger said when the semi lost its drive shaft, a spark caused a fire, but no one was injured. The driver, who was heading eastbound, was from Oregon.

Manger said one fire truck from Reliance put the fire out, and the semi was then towed to Chamberlain for repairs.
