BRYAN COUNTY -- A multi-vehicle pileup in Bryan County caused a semi to catch fire on Wednesday.

The accident happened down south on U.S. Highway 75 and forced a bridge over the Red River to be shut down.

It happened when a number of vehicles piled up, including an 18 wheeler. The truck was carrying wood which helped fuel the fire.

Traffic had to be diverted for hours until the mess could get cleaned up.

No one was hurt in the accident.
