PALMDALE, Calif. (AP) - All northbound lanes of State Route 14 in north Los Angeles County have been shut down after a big rig overturned and caught fire.

The California Highway Patrol says the single-vehicle crash happened shortly before 4 a.m. Thursday just south of Palmdale.

The CHP says the truck, which was carrying juice products, veered off the roadway, overturned and burst into flames. No injuries are reported.

Officials say oil spilled into lanes, making driving conditions hazardous.

The CHP didn’t say how long it would take to clean up the mess.
