LAS VEGAS (FOX5) -

Firefighters battled an overnight semi-truck fire that caused extensive damage to the truck and travel delays in northwest Las Vegas.

Authorities first reported a fire on U.S. Highway 95 at Durango Drive at about 10:15 p.m. Thursday.

Fire officials said they had to call for additional resources due to a limited water supply on the freeway.

Crews were able to extinguish the flames, without any reported injuries, but had southbound travel lanes on US-95 closed while they worked to clear the scene.

Authorities did not immediately release the cause of the fire as travel restrictions were lifted in the area after 6 a.m. Friday.
