A car caught fire shortly before 2 p.m. Tuesday on Interstate 295 north just before the road turns into Russell Street in the city, giving off smoke and closing the right lane of the highway, a city fire dispatcher said.

Traffic was passing on the left side and the burning vehicle was on the right shoulder as of about 2:15 p.m., officials said.

Fire engines 14 and 55 responded to the scene, which was expected to be cleared shortly, officials said.

No injuries were reported.
