Traffic on Interstate 95 through Norwalk was snarled Friday night when two northbound lanes were shut down as firefighters extinguished a car fire.
The blaze erupted in the engine compartment of a 1998 Pontiac Grand Prix about 9 p.m. Friday, between northbound Exits 13 and 14, according to firefighters.
The car was burning on the highway's right-hand shoulder when fire crews arrived on the scene about five minutes after being alerted by State Police. The two right lanes of the highway were closed to traffic while firefighters doused the flames, which took about 15 minutes, according to the fire report.
No injuries were reported, and all northbound lanes of I-95 were reopened by about 9:50 p.m.
Two Norwalk fire engines, with 10 firefighters, as well as a command car, were dispatched on the call.
