Town-bound traffic was slow-going on the H-3 Freeway for a time after a vehicle caught fire.

It happened at 4:09 p.m. two miles prior to the tunnel in the far right lane.

According to police dispatch, that lane was blocked off until a tow truck could arrive at the scene.

We received several reports from viewers of traffic at a standstill in the area.

The scene was cleared and traffic started flowing shortly after 5 p.m.

No major injuries were reported.
