Part of Interstate 35W in north Fort Worth was shut down Thursday morning after an 18-wheeler hauling bottled wine caught fire, authorities said.

Northbound lanes of the highway near Basswood Boulevard were closed for more than three hours after the truck caught fire shortly before 5:30 a.m. Thursday.

Fire officials reported one injured, but that person was not transported to a hospital.

The truck was hauling about 1,200 cases of wine or 4,100 pounds. Cause of the fire had not been released by authorities.

Officials reopened the northbound lanes just after 8:30 a.m.
