A 46-year old truck driver from Chicago told Broward County deputies that he was hauling 21 tons of ground plastic to Miami. He told officers that the cargo caught fire and spread to his cab and 200-gallon fuel tank.

The highway was closed for several hours and a detour was set up. The driver was not hurt and no other vehicles were involved. The cause of this incident is under investigation – was the cargo loaded properly.
