NORTH ROYALTON, Ohio– A portion of the Ohio Turnpike was shut down in North Royalton Tuesday night after a semi truck was involved in an accident and caught fire.

The Ohio State Highway Patrol said there was an explosion, but the truck was not hauling any hazardous materials. No one was injured.

All eastbound lanes were blocked in a two-mile area between Royalton Road and Broadview Road; a short time later, the left lane was re-opened.
