Expect delays! Southbound East 610 Loop south of East Freeway blocked by truck fire

If your commute takes you southbound on the East 610 Loop this morning, you may need to look for a detour. A big rig truck caught fire Monday morning on I-610 just south of I-10 East Freeway. The fire response has blocked the right shoulder, right lane and two center lanes, according to Houston TranStar.

Only one lane of traffic appeared to be open near Market Street. Authorities haven’t said what led to the incident, but they indicate another vehicle was involved. It’s not known whether anyone was injured.
