Motorists are asked to slow down as they travel west on Interstate 10 around the Pascagoula River Bridge.
A sport utility vehicle caught fire shortly before 3 p.m. It happened between mile markers 61 and 62 near Gautier, according to state troopers.
The fire doesn’t appear to be serious. However, that area of I-10 typically has fender-benders when an accident or other incident occurs in that area, said Mississippi Highway Patrol spokesman Chase Elkins.
