MINNEAPOLIS - A vehicle fire on Interstate 94 has blocked and slowed traffic in both directions and sent smoke onto an overpass just west of downtown.

The vehicle is in the northbound lanes of I-94, just beneath the I-394 bridge coming out of downtown Minneapolis.

Emergency crews started to leave the scene just after 3:30 p.m.

The scene was completely cleared shortly before the start of the afternoon's rush hour.

There are no details yet on how the fire started. The Mn/DOT website says the fire started just before 3 p.m.
