Traffic along Highway 55 West was brought to a halt Tuesday afternoon due to a dumpster loaded with carpet caught fire while being transported to the transfer station in Estill Springs. Driver Terry Clark quickly lowered the dumpster off of the truck on the shoulder of the road and the Tullahoma Fire Department responded. The dumpster was placed back on its truck and sent on to the Estill Springs transfer station. After the fire was extinguished, Tullahoma Police reopened Hwy 55 to traffic.
