The George Jenkins Boulevard overpass in Lakeland was closed in both directions as crews worked to contain a brush fire.
The fire was reported near and under the overpass where it meets Kathleen Road about 6 p.m. Wednesday. Dry conditions and winds spread the fire quickly, Lakeland fire officials said.
The fire was mostly contained by 9 p.m., officials said
Jenkins was closed in both directions between Sloan Avenue and Kathleen Road, but it has reopened.
