Houston Police are warning drivers to “expect major delays” on the southbound east loop on Monday morning. 

The delay stems from a tractor trailer fire on the shoulder of southbound 610 near Market Street that started at around 8:40 a.m. 

At least one other vehicle was involved in the fire. Police are warning drivers that delays are expected to be major and have given no estimated time frame. 

Avoid the area this morning if possible.
