I-40 Back Open After Tanker Fire


A tanker truck on fire closed a portion of I-40 Eastbound Monday morning for 15 minutes.

Oklahoma Highway Patrol said fire crews were there, and had the fire under control at the rest stop between Muldrow and Sallisaw in Sequoyah County. 

The truck has not been identified by police, however, iPix we received from 5NEWS viewers show the name on the truck as “Continental Carbonics.” An online search shows¬† the company headquarters is in Ohio, and is one of the largest manufacturers of dry ice and suppliers of dry ice blasting machines.
