CINCINNATI, OH (FOX19) -

All lanes are open again on northbound Interstate 71 near Stewart Road after a vehicle fire closed the highway about a half hour Monday morning.

No immediate injuries were reported when a sport utility vehicle vehicle burst into flames shortly before 8:30 a.m., dispatchers said.

One lane opened just after 9 a.m., and all lanes were clear by 9:20 a.m.

Traffic backed up in the area, sending motorists onto westbound Norwood Lateral, which quickly grew congested.
