INDIANAPOLIS (WISH) – The right two lanes of northbound I-465 were closed due to a vehicle fire.

Indiana State Police responded to find a semi carrying straw on fire at the 38 mile marker.

The straw was being off loaded from the trailer so the Lawrence Fire Department could extinguish the flames.

Officials with ISP say the lanes could be closed for an extended period of time.

No injuries were reported.
