HAZEN, NV - Traffic is clear again on Highway 50A after a truck fire near Hazen.
There are no reported injuries in Monday afternoon's fire of the large alfalfa truck. Some of the hay blew onto the road, making the area very smoky.
The Nevada Highway Patrol used a pilot car to slowly move traffic through, one direction at a time between Hazen and Leeteville Junction. That's between Fernley and Fallon. There's no word yet how the fire started.
