Vehicle fire shuts down portion of I-10 near Deming

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.

ABC-7 viewer Beatrice Boomhower provided video she took of the smoke and flames from the fire; it can be viewed in the video player at the top of this article.
