NORTH CHARLESTON, S.C. (WCSC) - The two lanes blocked Tuesday afternoon by a vehicle fire on I-26 have reopened to traffic.

The incident, reported at 2:35 p.m., blocked the two left lanes near the Montague Road exit at mile marker 213 for more than an hour.

Both lanes had reopened by 4 p.m., but a crash on the westbound side of I-26 a few miles away caused a backup on the opposite side of the interstate. That incident likewise had cleared by 4:15 p.m.

There was no immediate word on whether anyone was injured.
