A tractor-trailer truck fire has caused a 10 mile traffic backup south bound on Interstate-77 in Fairfield County north of Columbia.
According to the South Carolina Highway Patrol only one lane of southbound traffic is getting through at mile marker 42. The backup stretches into Chester County, trooper Bill Elder said.
The highway patrol suggests motorists seek an alternate southbound route around the backup until the road is cleared.
Motorists might take U.S 21/321 south and reconnect with the interstate on S.C. 34 south of the tie-up, Elder said.
