NORTH PORT, Fla. – All lanes on Interstate 75 in North Port are back open after a fuel spill from a tractor trailer Thursday.

It happened a little after 11 a.m. in the southbound lanes at mile marker 177, past the Toledo Blade Boulevard exit (#179).

Traffic was down to one lane as crews worked to clean up the spill.

Police say it was caused by a leak in the tank.
