Tuna Truck Catches Fire on I-75 in Clayton County

The holiday weekend has begun, and that means an increase in traffic on Atlanta highways. But holiday travelers and spring breakers headed toward Florida faced a unique delay this Friday morning: a truckload of tuna caught fire on I-75 in Clayton County.

The southbound truck, which was hauling 40,000 pounds of canned tuna, caught fire around 6 a.m. near Forest Parkway, the AJC reports. Authorities blocked all but one southbound lane of I-75 for over an hour, jamming traffic beyond I-285. Fortunately, no injuries were reported.
