The eastbound lanes of Highway 401 in west-end Toronto are closed following a fatal tractor-trailer fire on Monday morning.

Toronto fire officials say they received a call around 5:15 a.m. of a fire on Highway 401 involving two tractor-trailers.

When fire crews arrived on scene, they located one tractor-trailer fully engulfed in flames and paramedics say one person was pronounced dead at the scene.

Officials said the tractor-trailer was carrying paint and that it had spread all over the highway.

The fire was under control around 5:31 a.m. but has forced the closure of the eastbound express and collector lanes of Highway 401 at Allen Road.

Provincial police say the westbound express lanes at Yonge Street are also closed.
