A semi fire shut down all lanes of I-95 early Tuesday in Brevard County. 

The semi caught fire just after 4am along the northbound lanes of the highway not far from State Road 520.

Video from the Department of Transportation cameras showed large flames shooting into the sky before fire crews responded to the scene. 

The fire caused all northbound lanes of the highway to be shut down but crews were able to reopen the highway about an hour later. 

There are no reports of any injuries.
