A truck carrying salami and bacon caught on fire early Tuesday along Interstate Highway 580 in Livermore, causing a traffic mess for early morning commuters.

The Alameda County Fire Department said they were able to extinguish the big-rig fire at North Flynn Road about 6:15 a.m.

No injuries were reported. But firefighters said to expect delays along the Altamont Pass. Slices of salami were seen spilled on the side of the freeway and small fires kept erupting from the scene of the accident.
