Car fire caused heavy traffic on I-91 in Chicopee

Traffic is now moving again in area

CHICOPEE, Mass. (WWLP) – Traffic on a section of Interstate 91 southbound was stopped for a part of the afternoon Tuesday, due to a car fire.

The fire was in the median strip at the merge of Interstate 91 and Interstate 391, just past the Chicopee Curve.

State Police say that traffic had to be stopped altogether to allow a fire truck to get there. The vehicle has since been cleared away, and traffic is again flowing through the area, though with volume increasing because of the evening commute.
