Tuesday, December 17, 2013

A car fire slowed traffic Tuesday morning on I-95 in the Holmesburg section of Philadelphia.

It happened around 7:30 a.m. Tuesday on the southbound side between the Academy Road and Cottman Avenue exits.

Images from Sky6 showed flames engulfing the engine area of a light-colored sedan.

No fire department activity was observed in the area as the fire continued to burn for 20 minutes or more.

The right lanes of southbound I-95 were blocked, causing an extensive traffic backup at the height of the morning rush hour.

There was no immediate word of injuries.
