Pickup fire snarls traffic on I-75

Northbound lanes near Bowling Green were at standstill


BOWLING GREEN -- BOWLING GREEN -- Traffic on northbound I-75 resumed about 4:35 p.m., more than an hour after it was stopped because of a pickup truck fire, troopers at the Bowling Green post of the Ohio Highway Patrol said.

A passerby called the state patrol about 3:10 p.m. to report that furniture in the back of the truck was on fire. When troopers arrived, the truck was ablaze along the side I-75 just south of the Wooster Street exit for Bowling Green, and the two occupants were out of the vehicle.

By 3:45, the fire was out.

There were no reports of injury.
