Allen Park police say I-94 westbound has reopened just east of Southfield. 

The freeway was closed after a truck carrying garbage caught on fire around 6:30 a.m. Tuesday.

Police say the truck driver, upon discovering the load was on fire, dumped the garbage on I-94. The load spread across all three lanes.

It took crews hours to clean up the mess.
