Washington State Patrol said the truck was carrying rolls of carpet, which firefighters had to pull off the truck to make sure the fire was out.

At 9:35 a.m., troopers said drivers should expect a lengthy closure.

As of 11:30 a.m., the left lane was open to traffic.

Washington State Department of Transportation said drivers on I-90 can take exit 31 to SR 202 to get to Snoqualmie Parkway or Preston-Fall City Road, which will eventually lead drivers back to I-90 after the crash scene.

All lanes were later reopened.
