Traffic on Interstate 20 in Southeast Dallas ground to a halt this afternoon after an 18-wheeler burst into flames. The truck is blocking westbound lanes of I-20 on the bridge over Interstate 45; Dallas Fire-Rescue crews are on scene trying to extinguish the 18-wheeler and several areas of grass near the bridge that also caught fire. Multiple large explosions could be seen coming from the truck.

Video is currently on the front page here:

*** UPDATE ***
Here is an alternate location for the video:
20050524_1430truckexplode_am.wmv

If someone else could host this I would appreciate it as I will not be able to leave the video up for very long at that site.

Ouch! What kind of cargo was the truck carrying? Some type of petro-chemicals? If that happened in L.A. it would have caused a massive traffic jam lasting for hours.

Wonder what that tanker was hauling that went by on the bridge shortly after the truck blew up?

Still pulled from cluster's video:

Remember when that happened about ten years ago on 35E and Spring Valley (?).

Nobody noticed until the next day that the bridge was warped from the heat. Had to completely rebuild it.

That's happened twice to bridges in Birmingham in the last few years. Had to completely rebuild them each time, heat from the fire had them twisted up terrible......
