Thick black smoke could be seen for several kilometres as an SUV was fully engulfed in flames following a crash on Highway 403 in Mississauga Monday afternoon.

The eastbound lanes of the highway were closed near Dundas Street as Mississauga firefighters doused the flames around 4:30 p.m.

Only minor injuries were reported, but it is unknown how many victims were involved.

The SUV and a courier van were both heavily damaged in the crash.

The lanes of the highway have since re-opened.
