E-38 after leaving quarters viewed a large column of smoke in the area. Upon arrival, found heavy fire conditions from beneath road surface, located up inside the I-beam bridge spans that cross the Millcreek waterway. The roadway was immediately closed to traffic. Millcreek canal has extremely steep, concrete flood walls and a narrow ledge to crawl on for access underneath the bridge. With icy conditions forming on these steep surfaces, firefighters had trouble getting water to the area where the main fire was burning. Several explosions were occurring, 1 being a propane cylinder that bleved and rolled approximately 40’ down the flood wall into the bridge support where it was extinguished. With the use of rope lines, firefighters were harnessed and lowered down the walls into a position where water could effectively be applied from a safe location, and were able to extinguish after approximately 30 minutes. The Ohio Department of Transportation and Cincinnati Highway maintenance were notified. The intense heat caused spalling to the concrete below the main deck and twisted a steel cross member. The bridge was deemed safe to re-open by ODOT at approximately 2045 hours, but inspectors were going back on Friday morning for further investigation. The cause of the fire at this time is still being investigated. No injuries occurred.
