ST. AUGUSTINE, Fla. -- A Jacksonville Fire-Rescue ladder truck returning from being repaired caught on fire on Interstate 95, sending flames and smoke into the air and forcing officials to briefly stop all northbound traffic, according to WJXT-TV in Jacksonville.

Just after 1 p.m. Monday, St. Johns firefighters were called put out the fire on I-95 near state Road 16 exit.

According to Jacksonville fire officials, Ladder 34 was returning to Jacksonville from Sanford, where a new generator had been installed. It wasn't immediately known what caused it to start burning, but it will be towed back to Sanford.

The truck is valued at $534,000 and was under warranty, WJXT-TV reported.

No one was injured and all but one northbound lane reopened in about 15 minutes.
