WHITE HOUSE, TN (WSMV) -

Traffic was very stop-and-go on I-65 Sunday afternoon after a tanker caught fire in Robertson County.

It happened at mile marker 115 on I-65N, near the Cross Plains exit.

According to Tennessee Highway Patrol, the cab was fully engulfed by the flames, but the tanker -- which was hauling whiskey -- was not compromised.

Traffic was backed up on the interstate for about six miles until the left-hand lane could be reopened.
