(WNDU) - The Indiana State Police Toll Road Post is currently investigating a semi-tractor trailer fire on the eastbound lanes of the I-80/90 Toll Road.

It happened at the 88.8 mile marker in Elkhart County. No injuries have been reported. The fire appeared to be the result of a brake failure on the semi-tractor/trailer.

Eastbound lanes of traffic were shut down while troopers diverted eastbound traffic off of the Toll Road at the 83 mile marker exit. This lead to a backup in traffic that stretched for several miles.

All eastbound lanes were reopened after 2 p.m.
