1 Eastbound Thruway Lane Reopens After Truck Fire

SHERIDAN, N.Y. (AP) - State Police say one eastbound lane of the Thruway has reopened after both lanes were shut down for more than two hours by a tractor-trailer fire.
Troopers say the fire was reported around 8:45 a.m. Monday on the eastbound side of Interstate 90 in Sheridan. A 12-mile stretch was closed between Exit 59 at Dunkirk and 58 at Silver Creek until 11:15 a.m. The left lane has reopened while the right remains closed.

Troopers say the fire caused a 3-mile traffic backup. Police say the truck was hauling food.

No injuries are reported. The cause of the fire isn't known yet.
