A motor vehicle fire in the Ted Williams Tunnel eastbound forced State Police to shut down access Friday evening, a department spokesman said.
The vehicle caught fire about halfway through the tunnel at about 5:45 p.m., spokesman David Procopio wrote in an e-mail.
“Boston Fire was escorted into the tunnel [against the flow of traffic] due to traffic and people abandoning” their vehicles, Procopio said.
Fire crews extinguished the flames, but heavy smoke initially prevented any lanes from opening.
After the burned vehicle was removed, and a ventilation system began clearing smoke, one lane was reopened, he said.
No injuries were reported.
