MIAMISBURG, Ohio (WDTN) — A car being towed on northbound I-75 caught fire and caused a significant backup ahead of the Austin Boulevard exit.

Montgomery County Regional Dispatch told 2 NEWS that the call reporting the fire came in around 4:46 p.m.

No one was injured as a result but all lanes of the highway were shutdown, which caused a massive backup.

Traffic appears to be moving again, but crews can still be seen working on the right shoulder on the Ohio Department of Transportation’s OHGO cameras.

This is a developing story and will update it when new information is available.
