I-30 was alight with more than 40,000 pounds of frozen chickens early Wednesday as a tractor-trailer caught fire.

The Dallas Police Department told Fox 4 that the brakes of the 18-wheeler carrying the frozen chickens overheated and caught fire on Interstate 30 near the Dallas and Grand Prairie Line and sandwiched between Loop 12 and Macarthur Boulevard at around 1 a.m. on March 29.

Despite the driver immediately disconnecting the trailer from the truck, the trailer soon caught fire as well, and it the fire quickly spread.

The 18-wheeler was traveling from Arkansas to Long Beach, California.

Dallas Fire-Rescue made sure there were no additional hot spots after responding to the blaze.

Lanes were closed to allow crews to clean up but were reopened by 9:30 a.m. Wednesday, according to the Fort Worth Star-Telegram.

No injuries were reported in the fire. No other information was immediately available.
