Just after 6 pm Friday night Caney Creek Fire Department was dispatched to a call for smoke in the area near the Caney Creek bridge on FM 2090 between FM 1485 and Crockett Martin Road.
When they arrived on the scene they found flames encasing the bridge from both sides. Under it was a travel trailer that was totally involved in flames. Once the fire was extinguished damage to the underside of the bridge was seen.
The bridge was closed as fire crews waited on inspectors from TXDOT to reopen it due to the damage.
At 8 pm the bridge remains closed as crews continue the inspection.
The bridge is heavily traveled by motorists between Splendora and Conroe and many daily log trucks traveling to the mills in Splendora and Cleveland.
