MONROE, OH (FOX19) – - All lanes on northbound Interstate 75 are open again just before the Ohio 122 exit after an early morning semi tractor-trailer fire.

Crews battled the fully engulfed blaze, which re-ignited at least once, before it was reported out.

No one was hurt when flames broke out about 3 a.m. Thursday, a dispatcher said.

Monroe fire crews and state troopers initially just closed the exit onto Ohio 122.

Then, they blocked all northbound lanes except the left one for more than an hour.

The cause of the fire remains under investigation.
