Firefighters responded to a grass fire on Interstate 75 just north of Ohio 725 Thursday morning.

Traffic was delayed in the area as fire crews were hosing down the grass. A truck reportedly lost its tire, which caused the grass and a tree to catch fire.

Temperatures are expected to rise to about 100 degrees on Thursday, and officials have put heat advisories and fire bans into effect.
