The driver and passengers of a car that burst into flames on the A19 escaped uninjured.
It's not yet known how the vehicle caught on fire on the Tees Flyover Southbound earlier.
No one was hurt and fire fighters put out the flames.
The northbound carriageway closed due to smoke drifting across the carriageway, but re-opened at around 3:35pm.
