Box truck fire closes two lanes on Eastex Fwy near Kashmere Gardens

HOUSTON, TX — An 18-wheeler caught fire early Wednesday, blocking two lanes on the Eastex Freeway near northeast Houston’s Kashmere Gardens neighborhood, according to ABC13.

The incident occurred on the northbound lanes of the freeway after the Interstate Highway 610 North Loop at around 4:00 a.m.

It was unclear what caused the fire, but the driver told authorities he pulled over when his truck’s warning lights turned on and smoke began emitting from the engine compartment.

No injuries to the driver or anyone else were reported.

Two northbound lanes remained closed for over six hours while emergency crews worked to clear the wreck.
