A fire at a skate park underneath Interstate 95 caused a stretch of the roadway to shut down Sunday morning in South Philadelphia.
The fire started at the skate park in FDR Park, underneath the I-95 overpass near the Broad Street exit, the Pennsylvania Department of Transportation said. Firefighters extinguished the flames, but inspectors had both directions of the interstate closed to check for structural damage.
Southbound lanes were closed between exits 19 and 17 before reopening shortly after 7 a.m. Northbound lanes later reopened between the Philadelphia International Airport exit and exit 17.
