Tanker truck fire out after more than 24 hours

The fire is out and all lanes are open on Interstate 20, more than a day after a car crashed into a tanker truck in Arlington and started a fire, according to TXDOT.

All lanes were back open around 10:00 a.m. Saturday. The fire burned for a little more than 24 hours.

The 3,000 gallon tanker on the truck was almost completely filled with propane. It burst into flames at 6:23 a.m. Friday after a red mustang clipped the tanker truck, causing it to flip over near Bowman Springs Road.

No one was seriously injured.
