AUBURNDALE, Fla. - The eastbound lanes of Interstate 4 were temporarily shut down due to a charter bus fire, but are now back open.
Traffic was diverted onto SR 570 while emergency crews are working.
According to Sergeant Steve Gaskins with the Florida Highway Patrol, emergency crews responded around 11:30 a.m. in Auburndale at mile marker 41.
