      Authorities are investigating the cause of a fire aboard a semi-truck at a busy intersection that leads to South Padre Island.

      It all happened off Expressway 77/83 and Highway 100 near Los Fresnos around 4 p.m. on Tuesday.

      Flames could be seen coming from a semi-truck that had pulled over on the side of the road.

      Brownsville Fire Chief Lenny Perez said that the fire was contained and the semi-truck was later towed away from the scene.

      No injuries were reported, and the cause of the fire remains under investigation.
