All lanes of southbound I-57 were blocked for several minutes Tuesday morning for a car fire in the south suburbs.

Troopers were called to the fire about 10 a.m. at 138th Street, according to Illinois State Police.

All southbound lanes were shut down for several minutes, but were reopened by 10:40 a.m., according to state police.

There were no reported injuries.

The fire happened near where a man and woman were struck and killed Sunday while standing outside their disabled vehicle in the northbound lanes.
