A van hit the median at Portage Avenue near Carlton Street this afternoon and burst into flames.
Traffic re-opened about 1:45 p.m. on Portage Avenue in both directions, but the burnt van was still sitting on the median and the smell of smoke was noticeable from a block away.
An eyewitness described the van driving eastbound on Portage, hitting the median and coming to a stop before the vehicle burst into flames.
There were no immediate reports of injuries.
