The A47 at Peterborough is closed because of a big warehouse fire that has been causing dangerous driving conditions.
Police say the flames are now out at the window company at Ivatt Way.
But they are still dealing with three crashes caused by smoke blowing across the carriageway.
The road is expected to reopen in the next half an hour once recovery work is completed.
Concerns have been raised about whether plans to improve the A47 will go ahead.
The government has earmarked £300 million pounds for improvements due to be completed in the early 2020s.
A new consultation on the plans is due to start next week but some campaigners are concerned the government has over promised and won't be able to deliver.
Four of the six schemes are in Norfolk including:
- Dualling between North Tuddenham to Easton
- Dualling from Blofield to North Burlingham
- Improving the junction with the A11 at Thickthorn
- Improving the Great Yarmouth junctions including the Vauxhall roundabout.

Drivers on the A47 in Norfolk are being warned to be on the lookout after a series of incidents where objects were thrown from bridges on vehicles below.
In the latest, a Ford Transit van had its windscreen shattered between the Pullover and Hardwick roundabouts on Monday morning. An unknown object hit the window causing extensive damage.
"It is currently unknown what has caused this damage. However, at this time, it is believed that an object may have been thrown from a flyover.
"The victim was travelling at approximately 60-70mph and if he had not acted so swiftly, or the roads were busier, the outcome could have been a lot worse."
On three other occasions a golf ball sized rock has been thrown into the carriageway smashing the windscreens of passing HGVs on the nearby A17.

Eighteen months after their deaths, mystery still surrounds what happened to a young couple in the moments before being struck by a car as they walked along the A47 in Norfolk.
The driver told an inquest the man pushed his fiance into the path of his car.
Witnesses have said the couple were arguing between Wisbech and King's Lynn in July 2014.
Superintendent Paul Durham said the police looked at several scenarios but there was no evidence of any of those:
- they were fleeing a third party
- a suicide pact
The inquest concluded both died as a result of a road traffic collision.

MPs from across the Anglia region will continue to lobby for the A47 to be fully dualled.
The government has already agreed to a £300m investment programme which will see improvements at key pinch-points including the Acle straight.
They will also see the road - which runs from Great Yarmouth in Norfolk, through Cambridgeshire to Leicester - become a dual carriageway from Dereham through to Acle.
But following a meeting between a number of Norfolk and Suffolk MPs and with Highways England this week, Elizabeth Truss insisted last year's the announcement would not stop them lobbying for further improvements.
"I am keen to ensure that Highways England is planning for the long term so the A47 is future-proofed for further upgrades. Along with my fellow MPs, we want the A47 fully dualled and I have asked Highways England to present the economic case for this."

A woman has been killed after two cars collided on the A47 Acle Straight in Norfolk and crashed into water-filled ditches.
Emergency services were called to the scene just before 7.10pm on Wednesday evening after two cars travelling in opposite directions were involved in the crash about a mile from Acle. Both of the cars, a Ford Puma and Skoda Fabia, left the road and came to rest in water filled ditches.
"Firefighters removed the Ford from the ditch allowing the driver and passenger to be rescued while the driver of the Skoda was able to escape unaided. Both drivers were taken to the James Paget University Hospital for treatment while the front seat passenger of the Ford, a woman in her 50s, was taken to the Norfolk and Norwich University Hospital where she later sadly died."
The road was closed for five hours while emergency services carried out initial investigations, cleared the road of debris and recovered the cars.
Police would like to hear from witnesses of the crash.
