SCOTT COUNTY, IN (WAVE) - The northbound lanes of Interstate 65 reopened after a tractor trailer fire near mile-marker 30 in Scott County, IN.

Officers got the call around 4:30 Tuesday morning to original reports of an overturned truck.

When crews got to the scene, they found the truck was upright but on fire.

State troopers believe the truck pulling two trailers was hauling solvents.  Investigators believed the solvents fueled the fire.

Firefighters extinguished the fire and moved the truck to the shoulder, allowing for traffic to resume heading north.
