Crews from two fire departments responded to a fire early Sunday on Interstate 75 in Rockcastle County.

It happened at mile marker 56 near the Mt. Vernon exit.

From pictures posted on the Mt. Vernon Fire Department's Facebook page, it looks like a tractor trailer was involved.

Kentucky State Police tell us the southbound lanes of the interstate were shut down briefly, but are now back open.

We're told there were no injuries in the fire. No word on how it started.

Mt. Vernon and Brodhead Fire crews are now clear the scene of a commercial vehicle accident with fire at the 56 mile...
