Fuel Spill Closes I-15 For Hours During Morning Commute

Interstate 15 near Las Vegas has reopened following a major fuel spill.

The Nevada Highway Patrol said the Thursday morning crash shut down the southbound lanes of the interstate near Lamb Boulevard for hours.

Authorities say a tanker truck carrying 2,7000 gallons of diesel fuel spilled about 700 gallons of it.
