(KSL News) -- A mail truck went up in flames this morning on the side of the freeway.

Highway patrol troopers say a postal service mechanic was driving on I-15 by Lehi when his truck stalled about 7 a-m.

After he pulled off to the shoulder, he tried to restart his engine and noticed flames coming from the engine. He then got out of the truck and called 911.

Trooper Jared Taylor, Utah Highway Patrol: "When we arrived on scene, the mail truck was fully engulfed in flames. The Lehi fire department responded and were able to get the fire out fairly quickly."

Troopers closed the north Lehi on-ramp and shut down the right lane for about an hour.

No one's mail was lost in the fire.

The mechanic had picked up the truck after mail deliveries to fix some problems with the vehicle.
