LONG BEACH, Calif. (AP) - All lanes are open again on southbound Interstate 710 in Long Beach after two big rigs crashed, dumping fuel and giant rolls of paper onto the roadway.

The California Highway Patrol says nobody was hurt in the crash just south of Interstate 405 around 12:45 a.m. Wednesday.

Crews cleaned up about 100 gallons of fuel and a forklift was brought in to remove the paper rolls, which weigh several thousand pounds each.

Only one lane southbound lane was open for more than five hours until the mess was cleared just in time for the morning commute.

The cause of the crash is under investigation.
