The New Zealand Transport Agency said a small truck caught alight on George Bolt Memorial Drive, airport-bound, on Monday morning before 8am.
Diversions were in place around the incident and motorists were urged to consider using Puhinui Rd instead.
The road was re-opened about 8.15am but the congestion would take a while to clear, the airport said.
