UPDATE: Eastbound lanes of I-24 shut down in Marion County after tractor trailer fire

Posted: Updated:

UPDATE: The driver told the Tennessee Highway Patrol that he un-hitched the trailer from his truck when he suspected the fire in the trailer. He was hauling a load containing fiberglass.

The fire apparently re-ignited after initially being extinguished, which prompted the closing of the roadway.

Part of Interstate 24 was shut down Tuesday morning after a tractor trailer fire.

It happened in Monteagle. Eastbound lanes near milemarker 150 are closed.

One witness described the guardrails as having damage from the fire.

No injuries have been reported.
