Thick smoke poured from a tractor-trailer after it caught fire along a busy area road.

The big rig fire caused police to stop traffic along the access road to the Media Bypass (U.S. Route 1) and the Blue Route (I-476) northbound near where the road goes under the Blue Route in Delaware County around 6:40 a.m. Friday.

Traffic was completely stopped on the access road as firefighters rushed to the scene. After about 15 minutes, a firetruck arrived and crews extinguished the flames.

Traffic continued to move along the Blue Route despite the fire below.

There were no reports of any injuries.

After the blaze was put out, crews remained on the scene as they searched for a cause.

The roadway was reopened after less than one hour.
