ALBANY, NY (NEWS 10) – A tanker truck fire snarled traffic on Monday morning.

The fire on I-787 northbound underneath the I-90 overpass caused all roads to be closed for about an hour.

I-787 northbound was closed until 1:45 p.m.

There are no reports of any injuries at this time. Firefighters extinguished the fire quickly.

Crews transferred nearly 13,000 gallons of gasoline from the tanker so it could be moved.
