DEMING, New Mexico -- A portion of Interstate 10 in the Deming area was shut down Friday night due to a fire.
State transportation officials said all lanes of I-10 eastbound were closed at milepost 102 (Akela) as of 7:45 p.m.
The need for the closure was triggered by a vehicle fire at milepost 107.
Officials said traffic was being diverted off I-10 east onto NM 549 until further notice.
