A semi trailer carrying carnival equipment caught fire along Highway 50 Tuesday after a crash with a car.

Extra crews are needed to remove the truck from the side of the highway, and both directions of travel are impacted east of Pollock Pines.

It sounds like just a car and the semi with multiple trailers were involved in the accident, no word on injuries at this time.

CHP has just one lane open and are alternating traffic. It could take until about 6 p.m. to completely open the highway.
