A fire in a truck headed north on Interstate 880 in Milpitas on Saturday morning temporarily closed the far right lane and a ramp leading to state Highway 237, according to the California Highway Patrol.

CHP officer James Evans said the fire on the back of the vehicle, which a passerby described as a garbage truck, was reported at 9:53 a.m. He said a tow truck removed the disabled vehicle and the closed portions of the roadway were reopened around 11:50 a.m. Evans didn't know the cause of the fire.
