Eastbound traffic along the Pennsylvania Turnpike was snarled between the Allegheny Valley and Monroeville exits late Wednesday afternoon because of a car fire, state police said.

There were no reported injuries in the fire that was reported at 5:41 p.m. and forced troopers to reduce traffic to a single lane in the area until 6:20 p.m., state police said.

The backlog was cleared and traffic flow had returned to normal by 7 p.m., troopers said.
