NORTH NAPLES, Fla. — A vehicle fire shut down northbound lanes of Interstate 75 for about an hour just north of Exit 111, Florida Highway Patrol said.

All northbound lanes were initially blocked, but one lane opened shortly thereafter, allowing traffic to creep by the site of the fire, which began at about 6 a.m., according to FHP.

WINK News observed soon after 7 a.m. that all lanes had reopened.

No further information is immediately available.
