Saturday I-40 crash
Westbound traffic on Interstate 40 in Cocke County was blocked for sometime early Saturday morning after a trailer load of AA Duracell batteries caught fire. Cocke County Firefighter Colby McGaha said his department responded to near the 450 mile marker at 4 am. The unidentified driver of the Snyder Transportation rig reported that he noticed his trailer on fire as he drove. He was able to stop, unhook the trailer and pull the tractor forward, saving it from the fire. Firefighter McGaha said the driver suspects the blaze was started when the brakes on the trailer became too hot as he traveled through the curvy Pigeon River gorge. The destroyed trailer and 73,000 batteries were valued at a total of $100,000. Firefighters with the Grassy Fork Volunteer Fire Department also responded to the blaze.
