Good old #M50 if it's not a crash it's a fire! @LiveDrive pic.twitter.com/78tWjULU6x— Jonathan Ryan (@Jonathanjryan) January 30, 2015
Units from the Dublin Fire Brigade responded to the scene shortly at approximately 6pm.
They warned motorists that visibility on the route was affected due to the smoke from the fire.
"Please watch out for rubberneckers, they may stop suddenly," a spokesperson for the DFB tweeted.
Commuters faced significant delays as the lanes on the motorway were reduced to one for some time.
Gardai have confirmed that all motorway lanes are now open.
