The 401 is open again in Elgin County following a transport truck fire.

OPP say the truck caught on fire in the westbound lanes of the 401 between Currie Road and Iona Road.

Around 3 p.m. Tuesday, the thick smoke from the fire forced the closure of both lanes in that area.

The fire destroyed the transport truck and the trailer.

No one was injured.

The cause of the fire is still undetermined although nothing appears to be suspicious.

The transport truck did not have any hazardous cargo.
