Detroit’s I-75 is closed in both directions following a huge explosion at I-375. The tanker, which was carrying 9,000 gallons of fuel, tipped over around 8:45.

The driver said he began experiencing mechanical problems before the fire started. Once the fire is safely out, authorities will conduct an investigation into what caused it.

The pictures are intense, for fortunately, no one was injured.
