A crash and fuel spill on the 710 Freeway caused major backups in the northbound lanes Friday morning.

The crash, which involved a semi and several other vehicles, happened just before midnight near Bandini Boulevard and forced several lanes to be closed, according to California Highway Patrol.

While crews attempted to clear the accident scene, a street sweeper caught fire forcing all northbound lanes of the 710 to be shut down.

Traffic was backed up for several miles, and the backups lingered even as crews began to reopen lanes later in the morning.

No serious injuries were reported.
