The victims haven't been identified because next of kin have not been notified.

The accident involved three tractor-trailer rigs and multiple private vehicles, she said.

Reports from the news agencies say it appears one of the trucks caught fire and then spread to the other vehicles.

That area of I-95 remained closed until about 1 a.m. Wednesday, that's when NCDOT tweeted all lanes were reopen after being closed since the afternoon for the multi-vehicle crash.

The alert says the interstate is closed in both directions near Exit 10 in Robeson County near the SC state line.

The crash occurred near mile marker 7, between US 301 and the SC state line, state Department of Transportation spokeswoman Katie Trout said.

It wasn't immediately clear if there were injuries in the crash. That's not far from the border with SC. A ten mile detour on USA 301 and Highway 130 has been set up.

For drivers traveling south, take Exit 10 and turn right onto USA 301 South. Continue for nine miles and turn left onto NC-130/East Main Street.

Earlier, officials said crews would need to inspect the road for safety before re-opening the route.
