BOSTON (WHDH) – An exit off of the Mass Pike EB is back open after a rental truck caught fire, closing the Exit 131 ramp in the process.
MassDOT announced the ramp’s closure just after 3:45 p.m. as crews knocked down the flames at the Allston-Brighton/Cambridge exit.
Boston Fire crews were able to put out the flames thanks in-part to a hose they ran some 50 feet off of the ramp and to a hydrant down below, according to a tweet.
First responders soon switched into clean-up mode as they worked to clear a large amount of smoldering debris, some of which blew off the ramp and onto a shed structure beneath the exit.
The ramp later reopened after 7 p.m.
Details on what may have caused the fire or if there were any injuries have not yet been released yet.
