Thru lanes on the inner loop of the Capital Beltway at Interstate 295 are now open following a truck fire earlier Tuesday evening.
Traffic on the inner loop is still backed up.
As of about 8 p.m., all local lanes had reopened to drivers headed for the Woodrow Wilson Bridge, but traffic is moving slowly.
Maryland State troopers responded to the truck fire at 6:30 p.m. A hazardous materials crew was sent to the scene to clean up the remaining fuel that didn’t burn off.
