ATLANTA (CBS46) -

All lanes of I-285 northbound have reopened at Cascade Road after a fiery wreck early Tuesday morning involving two tractor trailers.

The fire was first reported at about 4 a.m. Tuesday. No injuries were reported.

According to Fulton County Deputy Fire Chief Jack Butler, it appears that the driver of one of the trucks fell asleep at the wheel.

"He hit a tractor trailer, the other truck, that had broken down on the side of the road," Butler said.

The impact forced the trucks into a guardrail.

"That's when it caught fire," Butler said.
