SPRINGFIELD, MA (WSHM) -

Springfield's Memorial Bridge has reopened to traffic after being closed due to a garbage truck fire during the early part of Wednesday's afternoon commute.

The bridge was shut down shortly after 3 p.m. when a truck headed southbound towards the city caught fire. Crews put the fire out quickly but stopped traffic in both directions as the truck was towed away and debris was cleaned off the road.
