UPDATE: One Lane Now Open after Truck Fire Closes I-77

Local News

One lane is now open on Interstate 77 near the Tuppers Creek exit in Kanawha County.

Earlier this morning, southbound traffic came to a standstill after a tractor trailer’s brakes caught fire before igniting the rest of the truck.

Several rescue crews responded to that scene. 

We now know that truck was hauling plastic pellets and no injuries have been reported.
