Drivers traveling down I-64 W (mile marker 131) on Tuesday morning, found themselves in bumper to bumper traffic for hours.

A Federal Express truck caught fire when the rear trailer of the truck caught on fire when a back tire blew. Heat from the tire caused that rear trailer, that as caring turkey baskets, to engulf into flames.

AAA foam was used to smother the blaze that took more than an hour to put out.

No one was injured in the accident.
