Travelers making their way down I-4's eastbound lanes, just past Lee Rd., were slowed down a bit early Friday afternoon as a van parked on the shoulder of the interstate caught fire.

The van was engulfed in flames before fire crews made their way out to extinguish the fire, which required authorities to cut the interstate down to just one lane.

As of now the fire has been put out, but little else is known about specifics relating to the fire.

This is an ongoing story, and we will update this post once more information is released.
