Interstate traffic has been moving slowly in Spring Hill after a grass fire ignited near the roadway.

Officials with the Spring Hill Emergency Communications Department released information on lane closures in both directions just after 11 a.m. Friday.

They said the inside lanes of Interstate 65 near mile marker 51 were closed in both directions due to the grass fire.

The size of the fire was not clear, nor was it known if the fire was in the interstate median, or if lanes were closed due to equipment in the area used to fight the blaze.

Delays were expected on I-65 just south of the Saturn Parkway interchange.
