CINCINNATI, OH (FOX19) - Southbound I-75 is partially open again in Grant County after a semi tractor-trailer fire closed it for several hours early Monday.

No injuries were reported when flames broke out at 5:20 a.m..

The highway was completely closed for several hours at the Williamsburg exit.

Travel conditions also are improving on southbound I-75 in Hamilton County.

Construction blocked the highway at the Ronald Reagan Highway as the morning commute picked up between 6 a.m. and 7 a.m.

Overnight construction between Paddock Road and the Ronald Reagan blocked the two left lanes about an hour longer than expected.

By then, delays driving into downtown Cincinnati from I-275 were past an hour.

Traffic also was slow on northbound I-71 near Kenwood Road in Madeira.

Crews responded to reports of a crash involving a motorcyclist just after 6:30 a.m., Hamilton County dispatchers said.

One person was taken to Christ Hospital, they said.

Further details were not immediately available.
