A tractor-trailer truck fire shut down both U.S. Route 15 southbound lanes just north of the Maryland border for about an hour early Friday morning.

There were no injuries as a result of the 4:05 a.m. fire, which was south of the Taneytown exit near mile-marker 5, according to Barlow Fire Chief Eric Hubbard.
