Interstate 10 reopens following truck fire


Interstate 10 near the Goodyear plant in Beaumont has reopened following a tractor-trailer fire which shut down westbound traffic early Thursday morning.

The accident was reported around 1 a.m.

A Department of Public Safety spokesperson told 12News troopers had to shut down the westbound lanes while the truck and its cargo were being removed from the roadway.

Trooper Stephanie Davis said the fire was not the result of a collision.  She said more details would be released pending an investigation into the fire.

No injuries were reported.
