The QEW Is Shutdown After A Truck Caught On Fire Early This Morning

If you were looking to take the QEW in Burlington this morning, you may want to re-think your route.

A truck loaded with batteries caught on fire early this morning and was reported by the OPP's Highway Safety Division at 3:37 a.m. to have caused road closures.

Fortunately, no injuries were reported along with the fire.

Toronto bound lanes on the QEW between North Shore Boulevard and Highway 403 are currently closed in Burlington, and the QEW Toronto bound has been blocked off at Fairview Street, according to OPP.

The batteries in the trailer of the truck burned, and the fire left massive damage to the vehicle in its wake.

The OPP Highway Safety Division says Burlington OPP are investigating and that the reopening time is currently unknown.
