Southbound lanes of the Capital Beltway reopened Wednesday in part of Fairfax County after a tractor-trailer caught fire.
Authorities said about 6 p.m. Wednesday that two lanes had reopened. The express lanes were briefly closed.
Delays extended to the American Legion Bridge. Officials advised motorists to use an alternate route.
