Tractor-trailer fire on I-16 westbound closes all lanes

The Macon-Bibb fire chief says there were no injuries

MACON, Ga. — A tractor-trailer caught fire Tuesday morning on I-16 westbound in Macon, causing all lanes to be blocked off.

Macon-Bibb Fire Chief Marvin Riggins says it happened near the Ocmulgee East Boulevard exit around 8:41 a.m.

He says the department responded with two fire engines and had to block off all westbound lanes. He says it seems the truck had a ruptured fuel line, which caused it to catch itself on fire.

There was one driver who got out without any injuries.
