The northbound ramp of Interstate 65 to westbound Interstate 80/94 has reopened after closing for about 10 minutes when a vehicle caught fire just after 2 p.m., a spokesman with the Indiana State Police said.

The vehicle fire was extinguished by 2:30 p.m.

The ramp closure caused traffic on northbound I-65 to back up from the I-80/94 westbound ramp to about 61st Avenue in Merrillville.
