ABILENE, Texas -

As of 9:30 p.m. Saturday, traffic is moving slowly and a left hand lane of westbound Interstate 20 is blocked off following a fiery accident.

Around 9 p.m. near Motel 6 and the I-20 exit for Dyess Air Force Base, the tread of an 18-wheeler's tire detached and hit a vehicle behind the 18-wheeler. The vehicle lost control and then caught fire.

No injuries were reported and the driver of the 18-wheeler was not at the scene.
