    A tractor-trailer hauling new sport utility vehicles caught fire along Interstate 95 in Pennsylvania Thursday morning.

    The fire broke out on the northbound side of I-95 on the ramp from Route 420 in Norwood, Delaware County around 6:20 a.m.

    No injuries were reported.

    As SkyForce10 hovered overhead shortly after the wreck, you could see heavy smoke and flames coming from one vehicle and spreading to an SUV loaded on the car carrier.

    Traffic backed up approaching the scene and the ramp was closed. Expect delays in the area even though the truck was on the ramp.

    Firefighters took about 30 minutes to extinguish the flames. After about an hour, crews cleared the wreck and reopened the ramps.

    No word yet on what caused the blaze.
