MILWAUKEE COUNTY, WI — A vehicle caught fire Tuesday morning, closing up to three right lanes on Interstate 894/41 in West Allis, according to TTWN Milwaukee.

The incident occurred on the southbound lanes at Exit 2A to West National Avenue. It was first recorded by TTWN at 9:20 a.m., when only the right shoulder was blocked.

It was not immediately clear whether a collision caused the blaze, but by 9:45 a.m., two right lanes were closed, and traffic had backed up to Lincoln Avenue, one exit back.

At 10:15 a.m., half an hour later, the closure was upgraded to three right lanes. Motorists were warned that the backup had extended down to the Zoo Interchange.

As of this writing, local agencies have not released further details or confirmed any major injuries.
