A tractor trailer fire reported at around 5:30 a.m. at I-24 E. near exit 65 is blocking the ramp in Cadiz in Trigg County. Eastbound lanes are also blocked. Eastbound traffic is detouring via Princeton-Cadiz (exit 56) to KY 139 into Cadiz, then taking US 68 eastbound to return to I-24 at exit 65. Caution is required due to heavy traffic along the detour route. The incident is expected to be cleared at around 9:30 a.m.
The fire pretty much engulfed the trailer making it difficult to extinguish. A backhoe had to be brought in to break open the trailer help firefighters access the burning cargo inside.

State officials to hold seat belt campaign event

SPRINGFIELD, Tenn. (AP) -- The Governor's Highway Safety Office plans to announce its "Click It or Ticket" campaign on Friday.
The event is scheduled to take place at 1 p.m. at the Robertson County Courthouse in Springfield.
Nationally, statistics show seat belt use increased significantly in 2012 as compared to 2011 among drivers, right-front passengers and backseat occupants.
However, officials say more than 400 of Tennessee's crash fatalities last year involved unrestrained drivers or passengers.
The Governor's Highway Safety Office urges all motorists to buckle up.
