The fire is behind an apartment building located at 8300 Fountain Court, near Williams Road. Exit 12 and the southbound ramp is blocked off while crews put out the fire.
"There was just a lot of smoke, you know, pine straw puts out a white gray smoke. Smoke was actually blowing toward the apartment complex, and we have people walking their pets and other things," Columbus Fire Battalion Chief Bobby Dutton said. "It was just a lot of thick smoke."
No injuries were and the cause of the fire is unknown.
