No injuries are reported, but a semi trailer is a total loss after a fire in the Township of Brockway in Jackson County.

According to the Black River Falls Fire Department, firefighters responded to a call of a semi fire on Interstate 94 at mile post 118 at around 9:30 Monday night.

The semi tractor was fully engulfed when firefighters arrived.  Fire had also extended into the semi trailer, which was full of sea food.

The semi was owned by a company out of Bonduel, Wisconsin.
