SCRANTON — An overnight fuel spill closed Interstate 81 in both directions in Lackawanna County.

Crews tell Newswatch 16 a tractor-trailer crashed Friday morning around 1 a.m. in the southbound lanes near mile marker 191.  I-81 is closed in both directions between the Clarks Summit interchange and North Scranton interchange.

No one was hurt in the wreck but the truck’s diesel fuel spilled on the highway.  I-81 is closed to give crews space to clean the spilled fuel.

Authorities set up detours to move traffic off the highway.  They encourage drivers to find a different route until the interstate reopens.  Troopers said the closure could remain in place for several hours.
