CINCINNATI (WXIX) - Westbound Interstate 74 is open again in western Hamilton County after a semi fire closed it earlier Wednesday morning.

It happened at the North Bend Road exit about 8:15 a.m., Hamilton County dispatchers say.

No injuries were reported.

Green Township fire officials said in a tweet the cargo on the truck is not hazardous.

The highway reopened by 9:15 a.m.

The ramp off the highway remains blocked.

This is the latest incident in a morning that saw lengthy delays and highway closures due to icy roads from overnight snow.
