PORT WENTWORTH, GA (WTOC) -

Officials say cooking oil caused a tractor-trailer to catch fire on I-95 North Wednesday afternoon. 

Flames broke out around 3 p.m. near the Port Wentworth exit. The flames were contained to only the trailer and the driver made it out safe.

Interstate 95 northbound lanes were blocked near Exit 109. Many were stuck in traffic for hours while crews worked to put the fire out and clear the scene. 

All lanes are back open to traffic.
