A burning truck slowed traffic on Highway 15 in Laval on Monday morning.

A Surete du Quebec spokesperson said a call about the truck came in at 9:40 a.m. The 18-wheel vehicle was pulled to the side of the road on the northbound side of the highway near the St. Martin exit.

The left lane was kept open as firefighters extinguished the fire, and the righthand lanes remained closed for about two hours.

No injuries were reported, but the cargo of apples was burnt.
