BALTIMORE (AP) - All lanes of the Chesapeake Bay Bridge are now open after a fire yesterday.

WUSA-TV reports that all westbound lanes had been closed for more than an hour Sunday.

WUSA says construction materials under the bridge deck caught fire. A fire engine put out the fire from above, and fire boats were checking for falling debris on a barge below.

Transportation officials said there were delays in both directions heading toward the bridge.
