All lanes of the Ohio Turnpike are once again open after a semi fire forced two lanes to be closed.

It happened shortly before 5:00AM Sunday in the eastbound lanes of on I-80 near Cass Rd. in Maumee.

Firefighters from Maumee and Perrysburg Township both responded to help extinguish the flames. At one point, the fire reignited.

However, by 7:45AM the fire was reported out and the two closed lanes were once again open.
