No one was injured early this morning when a liquid nitrogen tanker truck caught fire on Wilma Rudolph Boulevard in Clarksville.
A news release from CPD Public Information Officer Jim Knoll says the incident happened around 6:15 near the Center Pointe Road intersection. The empty tanker caught on fire and was quickly put out by the Clarksville Fire Department.
The tractor received no damage and the driver was able to get away unharmed, with the reason for the blaze still under investigation. Initial responders believed the brakes on the tanker could have been a factor.
Wilma Rudolph Boulevard was closed in that area for about an hour.
