Some commuters in St. John's experienced an unusual delay on Tuesday morning, when a pickup truck caught fire near a ramp on the Outer Ring Road. 

The driver was alone in the vehicle when it suddenly filled with smoke while he was driving on the Ring Road, an arterial that circles the city. 

The truck pulled over and stopped on Allandale Road, near a westbound exit to the Outer Ring Road. 

Firefighters used hoses to put the fire out.
