  Authorities say one person is dead after a fiery crash involving three semi-trucks on Interstate 40 near Grants.

New Mexico State Police did not immediately release any other information on Wednesday morning's crash and it was unclear if there were any other injuries.

Footage taken at the crash scene by Albuquerque TV station KOB show the charred remains of at least one big rig.

Authorities say one lane of eastbound I-40 has been opened but westbound lanes of the highway remain closed.
