Videos shared with MTL Blog on Facebook and Twitter show an ongoing truck fire on an overpass over the Décarie expressway.

The circumstances of the fire are unclear, but Gabriel Arpin, who sent the below footage to MTL Blog, posits that the fire is a result of an "engine or electronic problem." 

The flames have produced a large cloud of black smoke. A video from Twitter user @CowabungaDeets captures the smoke from as far away as de la Savane orange line metro station.

The videos below are from Gabriel Arpin.
