ST. LOUIS, MO (KTVI)- Motorists experienced a significant traffic delay Wednesday morning after a bulk tank caught fire on westbound I-70 near Lambert Airport. The accident happened around 6:20a.m. and caused all westbound lanes of the interstate to close.

Authorities say the driver disconnected from the tank as he was pulling so it wouldn't catch on fire.
