Hwy. 75 truck fire causes traffic headache

Posted: Updated:
DALLAS -

A truck fire caused big problems for the morning rush hour. Part of the North Central Expressway was shut down.

An 18-wheeler caught fire around 4 a.m. in the northbound lanes of the highway just before the High 5.

No one was hurt, but the blaze compromised the truck's diesel tank. Dallas Fire-Rescue hazmat crews were called to contain the spill.

Police allowed traffic to continue onto Interstate 635, but those who wanted to go north were forced to take an alternate route such as the Coit Road flyover.

All lanes of traffic have since reopened.
