The Loop 7 onramp at State Highway 31 east was closed for about 30 minutes Friday after a wreck left potentially combustible barrels on the roadway. According to Athens Police, the wreck happened when a Dodge van pulling a trailer — loaded with barrels and two ladders — tipped. The barrels, which were filled with gas and water, ignited and caused a small fire. The driver, whose name was not immediately available, was not injured and the Athens Fire Department put out the small fire before it spread.
