i40 wreck

One eastbound lane on I-40 was closed near Mulberry after a semi truck’s brakes caught fire on the interstate.

Authorities said the truck was carrying paper towels and toilet paper when it went up in flames near mile marker 29 around 5 a.m. Monday (March 17). Crews worked for several hours to remove the cargo from the truck to stop fueling the fire.

Firefighters from Pleasant View, Mulberry, and Watalula battled the flames for more than two hours.
