TAMPA (WFLA) – All lanes of the Sunshine Skyway Bridge have reopened after being closed due to a vehicle fire in the southbound lanes and a crash in the northbound lanes.

FHP Troopers responded to a single unit tanker truck transporting carbon dioxide which caught fire as a result of a mechanical issue along the northbound lanes of the Skyway Bridge, just prior to the exit for the Pinellas rest area.

While crews attended to the fire, a crash occurred in the northbound lanes shutting down one lane.

All lanes have since reopened and no one was injured.
