(KLTV) -

An accident has lead to major traffic delays on U.S. Highway 80 near Forney.

An 18-wheeler caught fire on the Trinity River bridge and appears to be blocking the eastbound lane of Highway 80. A Care Flight helicopter has just left the scene and fire crews are still working to distinguish the blaze. 

Eastbound and westbound traffic is backed up for several miles. The westbound lane of Highway 80 has reopened, but traffic is still moving slowly.

At this time it is unknown if there were any other vehicles involved.

The accident is near Farm-to-Market 460.
