Police are at the scene of a Matson tractor-trailer fire on the H-1 Freeway westbound near the Airport Viaduct.

One westbound lane remains closed. Earlier, police closed down three lanes to investigate the blaze.

Firefighters responded to reports of the truck on fire near the Airport exit around 11:05 a.m. They put out the flames at 11:15 a.m.

It's unclear when lanes will be reopened, but traffic cameras are showing traffic at a near standstill in the westbound direction.

HFD said it's unknown if there were any injuries.
