As you may have seen on our Facebook page, a semi-truck and trailer caught fire around 7 am this morning under the South Broadway St. overpass. The fire was quickly extinguished by local fire departments.

Due to the fire reaching the overpass, the South Broadway St. overpass will remained closed. TxDoT is sending an inspector to assess the damage, according to Sulphur Springs City Manager Marc Maxwell. Maxwell says there is not an estimated time for the overpass to re-open so plan your travel accordingly.

I-30 Westbound has been cleared but traffic is still delayed.
