MCCRACKEN COUNTY, KY – A stretch of Interstate 24 in McCracken County, KY is blocked this morning because of a tractor trailer fire.

We spoke to 911 Central Dispatch. They tell us crews are already on scene trying to put that fire out. Deputies have blocked the eastbound lanes of the interstate from Exit 4 to Exit 7 so they can keep people away from the fire.

It’s unclear if the driver of the truck was hurt. Central Dispatch says they will have more information for us later after the fire is out and the scene is clear. There’s no estimated time for when the interstate to reopen.
