Frontenac OPP say there were no injuries following an early morning transport trailer fire on the westbound 401 late Tuesday night near Kingston.

The MTO, MOE and Tomlinson's Environmental Clean-up attended the scene and are currently assisting with the safe removal of the transport and the clean up of the area. The highway was closed for approximately four hours and was fully reopened by 6 a.m.
