Residents react to tanker fire in Pikesville
A massive fire erupted early Friday morning from a fuel tanker in Pikesville, closing Interstate 795. The fire shut down I-795 where it meets the Baltimore Beltway. An 11 News crew at the scene captured video of the highway still on fire at 7:20 a.m., but said it appears to be getting smaller. The smoke subsided substantially and the flames appeared to be out by 8:30 a.m. Maryland State Police tweeted that troopers were called just before 6 a.m. to the northbound lanes of I-795 and that the truck's driver was taken to Shock Trauma in Baltimore. No other injuries were reported.
