DUNN, N.C. (WNCN) — All northbound lanes of I-95 near E. Cumberland Street in Dunn remain closed following a massive truck fire under a bridge Tuesday afternoon.

The Harnett County closure, near mile marker 73, which is U.S. 421, started around 2:30 p.m., according to the NC Department of Transportation.

Officials said a box truck caught fire and stopped under the bridge. Video from the scene showed massive flames and plumes of smoke coming from the truck as it burned.

Photos from the scene showed the cab of the truck destroyed by flames with fire damage to part of the trailer.

“I-95 North and U.S. 421 North are expected to remain closed through at least Wednesday morning while crews clean up the scene and inspect the I-95 bridge to ensure it has not been structurally compromised,” the North Carolina Department of Transportation said in a news release.

Dray McDonald was about to get on I-95 when he saw the truck on fire and captured video of the dramatic scene.

McDonald said he heard and felt something explode at one point, the noise can be heard about 45 seconds in to the video.

“What I thought of is being deployed in Iraq and Afghanistan, I’m a soldier, so it reminded me of, you know, when we used to hit IEDs or having seen other vehicles hit IEDs, that’s exactly what it looked like,” McDonald said. “I mean it was fully engulfed in flames and I was just hoping that the driver was OK.”

Harnett County EMS officials said there were no injuries.

To avoid the area, drivers are asked to take the exit 73 off-ramp and continue to the on-ramp to re-access I-95 N.

According to traffic data, back-ups on northbound I-95 approaching the wreck were about three miles long as of 5:30 p.m.

The NCDOT had originally said I-95 north should reopen by 8 a.m. Wednesday.

Wednesday morning, the NCDOT announced the I-95 North bridge will remain closed pending test results from the damaged steel beams.

Inspectors that specialize in bridges and the testing of materials were at the scene Wednesday morning to collect samples and assess the damage, according to a release.

NCDOT officials expect to know the test results later Wednesday.

Based on those results, officials say they may be able to safely reopen a single lane, or possible both.

They plan to announce the decision later in the day.
