This is happening in North Jersey on the northbound side near Exit 16W for Route 3  where a tanker fire has shut down the western spur of the New Jersey Turnpike.

Reports say an accident caused a tanker truck traveling to flip over and burst into flames, sending large black plumes of smoke into the air. There is also rubbernecking on the southbound side.

Traffic on eastbound I-280 approaching the western spur is at a near standstill.

The Lovely Christina will have more info during "Parkway First Traffic"
