Semi truck loaded with fish burns, snarls I-24 traffic

LYON COUNTY, KY (KFVS) - A tractor trailer fire closed one lane of traffic in Lyon County, Kentucky at the 52 mile marker going westbound on I-24 on Saturday. 

According to the Kentucky Transportation Cabinet, the trailer loaded with fish was engulfed in flames. Water used to extinguish the flames left ice on the road.

KYTC personnel have salted the road to clear the ice, but cleaning the fish remains will say it will require special equipment and extra effort for cleanup.

The road will likely be restricted to one lane.

Drivers are urged to use caution, as emergency response personnel will be along the road in close proximity to traffic flow.
