Traffic along SB I-35 has been a mess since midnight. Our news partners at KWTX report a tractor trailer was destroyed by fire shortly before midnight.

KWTX reports the driver of the truck noticed a loud noise coming from his tailor. When he stopped to investigate, he saw the fire. The driver was not injured but his truck was completely destroyed. The driver told KWTX he was hauling auto parts and sunflower seeds.

Until the accident is cleaned and cleared, all southbound traffic is being diverted to the frontage road going south towards temple. Avoid SB I-35 if possible. The truck fire was at mile marker 313 near the Bell County line as you head southbound. Drive safe!
