A massive fire Monday shutdown a busy Michigan interstate for hours. 

It happened in the westbound lanes of I-696, near Royal Oak in Oakland County.

Firefighters had to shut down both westbound lanes as well as the eastbound lanes while they battled the blaze.

Investigators said several vehicles caught fire after a crash involving a semi truck. Luckily, there were no serious injuries, state police said. 

MDOT reports EB and WB 696, I-75 to Woodward will continue to have the left lane closed for rebuilding of the media barrier wall.

The EB 696 left lane closure is expected to reopen Thursday.

The WB 696 left lane closure remains through Friday evening.
