One Eastbound lane of I-20 is finally open. 

It has been closed since Monday night due to a truck fire near Forest in Scott County.

Around 6:30, an 18-wheeler carrying a hazardous material, a Hydrazine Aqueous Solution, caught fire near mile marker 95.
 
When the driver realized the trailer was on fire, he was able to get out of the truck and get to safety.

Officials decided to let fire burn out.

FedEx is acting in Unified Command with Scott County Emergency Management, MDEQ, MEMA, and MHP.

One Eastbound lane and both Westbound lanes are now open at the scene of the accident.
