All lanes of Interstate 95 are open again after the fire. State police say the tractor-trailer's brakes got heated and caused one of the tires to catch on fire.
It happened around 1 am on I-95 near the Belvidere exit in Downtown Richmond, and although it happened while most were sleeping, traffic was still an issue.
Traffic at was at a standstill as State Police shut down the road to investigate what happened. It was like this for about half an hour.
