Barn fire spreads to woods and closes I-75 Sunday night

OOLTEWAH, Tenn. (WDEF)- I-75 North and Southbound were closed down for a few hours Sunday night.

Officials believe that a vehicle left the interstate and caught a barn on fire on Brett Lane in Ooltewah.

The fire spread from the barn to the woods near the interstate which forced crews to battle the fire from I-75 north.

Officials say that the barn had a high pressure gas line and lots of ammunition.

Tanker trucks had to supply water because there are no hydrants on the interstate.

Officials say that they were not able to find the car that might have caused the incident.

The cause is under investigation and all lanes are now reopened.
