(Litchfield, IL) — Authorities say a portion of Interstate 55 was shut down following a fire. The blaze broke out yesterday morning on an utility pole outside the Pioneer plant in Litchfield. A power line dropped, causing an eight-mile stretch to be closed between the Carlinville and Litchfield exits. The flames were extinguished and the road reopened later that morning.
