Eastbound lanes of I-84 near Mountain home are now open following a fiery crash involving multiple vehicles.

Idaho State Police report, the accident was between a stationary vehicle and a Fed Ex semi hauling three trailers. 

Tayler Kerns, of Haines, Oregon, and two passengers were stationary on the westbound right shoulder of the Interstate in a 2006 Dodge pickup pulling a trailer carrying a 2007 Dodge pickup.

Travis Trowbridge, of Boise, was traveling westbound in a 2015 Volvo FedEx tractor hauling three trailers when his vehicle struck the trailer with the Dodge pickup on the right shoulder. The second and third FedEx trailers overturned and the vehicle came to rest in the median, where the third trailer caught fire.

East and Westbound lanes were blocked for about five and a half hours while crews worked to clear the scene. No one was injured in the crash, Idaho State Police are investigating.
