A fuel tanker caught fire after rolling onto its side on Butler Avenue beneath the Interstate-40 underpass Tuesday night. Soon after the incident at around 7 p.m., the truck and tanker trailer burst into flames.

ADOT crews are on scene this morning repairing the area. Crews from multiple agencies arrived on scene to help with the fire and traffic control. The accident is under investigation.
