Eastbound Interstate 30 was reopened after an 18-wheeler fire forced authorities to close all lanes at Belt Line Road in Grand Prairie Monday.
Grand Prairie police tweeted late Monday that the eastbound side of I-30 would be "closed for an extended time" as crews worked to extinguish the fire. Eastbound traffic was being diverted at the President George Bush Turnpike.
