DAVIE, FLA. (WSVN) - A garbage truck caught fire along the Florida Turnpike just before Griffin Road in Davie, backing up traffic for miles.

Davie and Hollywood firefighters responded to the scene along the northbound lanes on the Turnpike between Griffin Road and Stirling Road, Monday afternoon.

Crews could be seen dumping water on the burning garbage truck in an effort to extinguish the fire.

Only one lane northbound remained open to traffic as crews worked to clear the scene.

No injuries were reported.

Traffic in the northbound lanes were backed up all the way to the Miami-Dade/Broward county line. Those lanes were later reopened to traffic.
