Tanker truck catches fire, shuts down lanes in Baldwin

Jacksonville, Fl. — Lanes are finally back open on U.S. 301 at Gilridge Road after a tanker-truck caught fire on Sunday night in Baldwin.

The Jacksonville Sheriff’s Office worked with Jacksonville Fire and Rescue as it was all hands on deck to put out the flames. It had shut down lanes in both directions for at least four hours.

The driver of the tanker truck told our partners at Action News Jax that his rear tired popped and the bank of his tanker caught fire. No injuries were reported.
