Semi-Tanker Fire Closes U.S. 23 in Ross County

U.S. 23 in northern Ross County was shut down Tuesday morning due to a semi-tanker truck fire. 

The vehicle was engulfed in flame about one mile south of the Ross/Pickaway County line near Blackwater Road. 

The incident took place sometime around 9:00 a.m. and caused all four lanes of U.S. 23 to close for about an hour-and-a-half while emergency personnel worked to put out the fire. 

The affected area has since reopened to normal traffic.

No injuries have been reported at this time.
