A semitrailer fire on eastbound Interstate 94 closed several lanes of traffic at the St. Croix River Bridge during Thursday afternoon rush hour Sept. 27, 2018, according to the Minnesota Department of Transportation.

One lane remained open following the crash, with clean up continuing into the evening, according to a MnDOT tweet.

The lane closures caused traffic backups near the Stillwater and Hastings as motorists were diverted to other river crossings.
