JUAB COUNTY, Utah — A fire on the shoulder of I-15 closed the freeway to northbound traffic in central Utah Saturday afternoon.

The Utah Department of Transportation announced the closure around 3:15 p.m. at milepost 204, about 16 miles north of Scipio.

By 3:30, the fire appeared mostly extinguished, and one of the two northbound lanes had been re-opened. Drivers may still experience delays as a long line of vehicles was still backed up behind the scene.

No information on what was on fire was immediately available, but it appeared it may have been a vehicle.
