A trailer carrying "Master Jack" drain opener spilled over and blocked two lanes of I-40 E at Seventeenth Street Thursday afternoon.

According to the Knoxville Fire Department, Don Melton from Denver, CO was hauling a 4' by 6' enclosed trailed filled with the liquid. His trailer came loose from the van and fell over blocking two lanes of I-40 E.

Melton told officials he was on the way to North Carolina to sell the liquid at a flee market.

Officers with the Fire Department worked to neutralize and dilute the product.
