8:46 p.m.: A fire that was reported to be coming from the front of the vehicle has closed Easton Road between Allison Road and Barrett Road in the Willow Grove section of Upper Moreland.

Fire crews are on-scene and no injuries are reported, say police.

When the road will re-open in unknown at this point. Police say that below freezing temperatures are causing the water used to extinguish the flames to freeze on the road.

The fire was reported minutes after 8:15 p.m.

9: 09 p.m.: A reader who sent us an e-mail around said when he drove shortly before 9 p.m. the fire appeared to be extinguished.

9:43 p.m.: Upper Moreland police report that the road has reopened and has been salted.

Police warn that where the road may appear wet but it could be icy. Drive with caution.
