LUNA PIER (WWJ) - A stretch of I-75 in Monroe County shut down as the morning commute was ramping up Thursday after a vehicle hauler caught fire. 

The incident happened around 6 a.m. along northbound I-75 near Luna Pier Road. 

It wasn't immediately clear what caused the hauler to erupt in flames. It's also unknown if anyone was injured.

The freeway was completely closed for hours, then traffic was allowed to pass by the scene in the left lane only. Just before noon, the scene was cleared and the freeway completely reopened to traffic.
