Tanker Truck Fire Halts Westbound I-20 Traffic

LONGVIEW (KYTX) - Wednesday, before 5 p.m. CBS 19 received reports that firefighters, police, and DPS Troopers were responding to the scene of a tanker truck fire on Interstate 20 at Estes Parkway. 

According to public safety communication, all westbound traffic on the freeway was blocked until authorities opened an access road.

The tanker was carrying non-flammable material, so firefighters are concentrating on the truck's cabin.

Seek an alternate route if you're traveling in the area.

CBS 19 has a reporter on the scene and will update you when more details become available.
