Northbound Interstate 15 near Speedway Boulevard has reopened after a vehicle fire shut it down Wednesday afternoon, Nevada Highway Patrol said.

All lanes reopened by 2:30 p.m., NHP said. An alert from the Regional Transportation Commission of Southern Nevada saying they’d been closed came in shortly after 1 p.m. after a semi truck caught fire on I-15.

Traffic cameras showed a rig on fire blocking all lanes.
