RENO, NV - A truck fire slowed traffic over Donner Pass Sunday afternoon.

It happened near the Castle Peak exit in the westbound lanes of Interstate 80.

Cal Fire personnel at the station in Grass Valley said it started at about 1:15pm and that both the truck and the trailer were involved. They say the fire was put out quickly but the clean-up is taking longer.

A California Highway Patrol official in Truckee reported no one was hurt and officers were still on scene as of 5:50pm Sunday.

No word yet on what caused the fire.
