An investigation has begun into how the fire started.
Bedfordshire Fire and Rescue said the A6 would remain shut until Highways teams had cleaned all the water from fire hoses from the carriageway.

Fire crews are scaling down their work at the Four Winds Industrial Estate north of Clophill following a serious fire that started last night.
There are still smouldering fires within the buildings and three engines will stay at the scene to damp down and turn over the debris while working to extinguish these remaining hot spots.
These smouldering fires are still producing some smoke and it is likely that the damping down could be a prolonged process lasting up to 48 hours.
It is hoped however that the A6 will be cleared and opened to traffic again by early evening.
