Part of U.S. Route 11 was closed Friday afternoon on the northern end of Harrisonburg near Melrose Road (which is a bit north of the I-81 Exit 251 interchange) due to a serious vehicle fire.

A work-pickup and another vehicle struck each other and were soon fully engulfed in flames. A column of thick black smoke was visible from the nearby interstate highway.
