SAVANNAH, GA (WTOC) - One Northbound lane on I-95 near Highway 204 has been closed after a tractor trailer carrying new cars caught fire destroying three of the vehicles on the trailer.

The fire started around 3:25 p.m. when the driver saw smoke coming from the back of the tractor trailer.

The driver proceeded to pull off the road and then unhook the truck from the trailer since he was worried the fire would spread.

Southside Fire Department originally responded to the fire and are being assisted by Savannah-Chatham Metropolitan Police Department.

No injuries occurred during this incident but traffic is slow in the area because of the limited lane access.
