Highway 25 North reopens to traffic after morning truck fire
Driver made it out of truck unharmed after it caught fire around 5 a.m.
Highway 25 in Montreal has been reopened to traffic, about 10 hours after a truck caught fire right outside the Louis-Hippolyte-La Fontaine tunnel early Thursday morning.
The truck flipped onto its side near the exit for Hochelaga Street around 5 a.m., leading to the shutdown of all three lanes on the northbound side of the highway during the morning rush hour.
The driver was able to get out of the truck and was not injured.
After putting out the fire, firefighters spent the morning clearing out the truck, which was filled with fresh produce.
The Sûreté du Québec does not know what caused the fire. No other vehicles were involved.
