Truck inferno slows westbound traffic on Pike near Blandford


A tractor-trailer fire has traffic stranded for several miles on the westbound side of the Massachusetts Turnpike between Russell and Exit 3 in Westfield.

Around 12:45 p.m., state police were notified that the semi was ablaze at the 33.3 mile marker of the MassPike, roughly 4 miles east of the Blandford service area. So far, there are no reports of injuries or any indication from police when that stretch of interstate will reopen.
