A truck caught fire on Highway 40, near the Decarie Interchange, partially closing the eastbound lanes Thursday.

According to Aurélie Guindon, with the Sûreté du Québec (SQ), the fire started around 9:50 a.m.

“There was no accident with another vehicle,” she told Global News, adding that it seems the truck was filled with earth.

One lane in the eastbound direction has been reopened; the westbound lanes are unaffected.

“Maybe it’s mechanical.”

Guindon could not say when the highway will be reopened.
