    Portions of I-35 E in Dallas were closed after a truck carrying Little Debbie snacks caught fire.

    Police say two men in an 18-wheeler that showed a check engine light as it was traveling on I-35 E south of Hiline Dr.

    Once the driver pulled the big rig over, he discovered the truck was on fire and disconnected the trailer before moving the tractor down the frontage road.

    By the time firefighters arrived, the truck was fully engulfed in flames.

    Emergency crews shut down the frontage road and most southbound lanes of the freeway while they fought the fire.

    No one was injured and the 2700 cases of Little Debbie snacks in the trailer are safe and sound.
