Three right lanes of southbound I-95 are closed.

LAUREL, Md. — Traffic on southbound Interstate 95 was backed up after a large tour bus caught fire Friday morning. Three right lanes of southbound I-95 are closed.

The incident happened along I-95 just before Exit 33 at Maryland Route 198 in Laurel, Md. around 7:42 a.m, Maryland State Police said.

The bus was traveling south on I-95 when it started smoking and the driver pulled the bus over to the right side of the road, police said. Fire crews were then dispatched to the scene shortly after.

There is a considerable amount of damage to the back of what appears to be a tour-type bus.

There are no reported injuries. Everyone on the bus safely evacuated. It appears that passengers from that bus are standing around the bus.

There is no word on what caused the incident.
