Northbound I-95 Reopens

LAUREL, Md. (AP) — All lanes of Interstate 95 have reopened after being closed for about four hours because of a brush fire that spread into the median of the highway in Laurel.

The highway was closed around 2:20 p.m. and remained closed for more than 4 hours.

Mark Brady with the Prince George’s County Fire Department says firefighters were able to prevent the blaze from spreading any further once it reached the highway.
