The inbound lanes of the Westpark Tollway at Synott were moving slowly after a car caught fire Monday morning.

Only one lane of traffic remained open and a slight backup formed as motorists passed the scene.

Fuel spilled out of the car and the fire traveled down the side of the road, forming a fire line for several yards.

Firefighters arrived to the scene and tapped out the fire and no injuries were reported.

The cause of the fire is not known.
