The right lane and right shoulder of eastbound Highway 401, between Ingleside and Long Sault, are blocked because of a tractor-trailer that caught fire.
O.P.P. officers are still on the scene of the blaze that happened around 12:15a.m. Thursday.
Police say the tractor-trailer caught fire because of mechanical failures.
Traffic between the Dickinson Drive exit and Moulinette Road, was being re-routed through the night, however, as of 5:30a.m. police said one lane was now open to traffic.
The 36-year-old male driver from the GTA was not injured. The tractor was carrying dog food and there’s no danger to the public.
