A portion of 490 eastbound is shut down at this hour because of a tractor trailer fire. The Monroe County Sheriff's Office says the tractor caught fire between Exits 4 and 5. That's the Chili area.

The expressway in that area is closed to traffic traveling eastbound. Emergency crews are on the scene directing traffic.

News10NBC is told there are no injuries. The sheriff's office says a mechanical issue caused the fire. A spokesman says the trailer was filled with frozen chicken.
