LA MOINE, Calif. -

Traffic slowed in Shasta County north of Redding Saturday evening when a big rig trailer caught fire.

The fire was reported at 5:09 p.m. in the northbound lanes, just south of La Moine.  The location is about 34 miles north of Redding.

Northbound traffic remained open as the trailer burned on the shoulder of the road.
