OPP closed all lanes of the 401 through Cambridge on Thursday night because of a transport truck fire.

Sergeant Kerry Schmidt says they closed the 401 from HWY 6 North to Hespeler Road in the early evening hours due to the single vehicle crash. One eastbound and one westbound lane reopened around 11 p.m.

All lanes are now reopened through the area.

The transport truck crashed between Townline and the Cambridge Service Centre, and was blocking all lanes of the highway.

Schmidt says there are no reports of injuries.

Debris and fluid were scattered across the highway, and crews were called in to help with the clean-up.
