Two lanes are shut down on the Ravenel Bridge over the Cooper River as emergency crews clear a pickup truck fire from the span.

Caller reports indicate that ramps to the bridge were being blocked, but Charleston police said the span remains open.

This is the second consecutive day a car fire has stymied northbound traffic on the Ravenel Bridge.
