CINCINNATI (AP) — Officials plan to check for structural damage following a fiery crash and hazardous material spill on a bridge that links Ohio with Kentucky.

Officials say a truck hauling potassium hydroxide and another truck crashed on the northbound deck of the Brent Spence Bridge early Wednesday morning. A fire broke out.

Firefighters extinguished the flames, but officials are concerned about possible damage to the span.

Cincinnati police have advised motorists they’ll face detours northbound on Interstates 71 and 75 in Kentucky.

Interstate-471, I-71, I-74, I-275 and U.S. 50 are alternate routes. No injuries are reported.
