I-91 South re-opened following trash truck fire

NORTHAMPTON, Mass. (WWLP) – All lanes of travel are now open on Interstate 91 southbound in Northampton, several hours after garbage truck fire had closed the highway.

The highway was shut down during the morning commute, when the truck caught fire. Drivers were diverted off the highway at Exit 21 for hours before a single lane was opened up in the early afternoon.

By mid-afternoon, they finally were able to re-open the entire highway.
