Vehicle fire closes Interstate 95 lanes in Milford

MILFORD — A vehicle fire closed two southbound lanes of Interstate 95 on Saturday morning.

The fire, reported at 9:40 a.m., closed the right and center lanes between exits 41 and 40.

A tractor-trailer truck was blocking the lanes, along with several State Police cruisers.

Milford firefighters arrived and within 10 minutes, the fire was out, but thick smoke billowed from the scene.

Shortly before 10 a.m. a flatbed tow truck arrived to haul away the vehicle.

With two lanes still closed, southbound traffic slowed near exit 41 in Orange. Travel speeds near the fire scene were in the single numbers.

There were no reported injuries.
