McHENRY, Md. (AP) — State police say the eastbound lanes of Interstate 68 in far western Maryland are closed because of a vehicle fire and hazardous-materials spill.

The closure occurred around 6:45 a.m. Wednesday, about 6 miles from the West Virginia border. Police say they don’t know when the road will reopen. Traffic is being detoured through a rest area.

Police are investigating the cause of the fire and spill.
